(Yesterday I goofed and had the wrong title with the wrong post. Apologies to both Don and Laura.)
I think every poet needs to be reading this blog by Laura Salas. Why? Because Laura not only talks the talk, she walks the walk. Somehow, in-between raising a family and doing a tremendous amount of work-for-hire projects and teaching both on and offline, she is crafting the life of a working poet. And she shares that journey with her readers, the good, the bad, and the ugly. She also shares a tremendous amount of original (and wonderful) poetry.A couple of my favorite posts include her recent original villanelle Wounded and this original poem, Recipe for a Poetry Book, A Poem for Lee Bennett Hopkins.
Laura encourages everyone to get into the poetry habit with her weekly (every Thursday) photo poetry prompt for 15 Words or Less Poems.
Tell Laura I said hello when you stop by.
