Speaking with poet Rachel McKibbens last week on “The Blood-Jet” was refreshing and timely.
I never laughed/giggled so hard on the radio show before, and I remembered that poetry is about communion with writers we’ve never met (and in many cases, we’ll never meet) and that it is FUN sometimes.
Prior to Oscar Bermeo’s recommendation, I had never heard of Rachel before. We talked briefly on the show about writing exercises on her website and fresh ways to approach poetry. Definitely check out her website. Find some of the exercises on her blog and write!
More daily poems coming soon….
