joanneburns

Hot off the blog is ANOTHER reply to my curly question about why poets poetecise, this time a very thoughtful and honest reply about struggling to find new things to say, by one of my longtime favourite poets, joanne burns, author of so much that is goodness in poetry form.

It’s over on The Blue Corner, as per usual. So go read it, why don’tcha?
