The amount of times I have actually wanted to smash my head against a wall because of my stories is concerning but expected as a writer. It’s one of two reasons I keep a football helmet close by when I pick up a pen and paper.

                We writers are the gods and...

1)  I loved your poem, “Ghost’s Mouth.” It seemed to be exploring the passage of time. The lines “an old september / something extinguished / in dry sage” evoked a feeling of nostalgia in me. How has your own sense of time influenced your poetry?

This poem is very much...

Two evocative readings by the poet, K Lang, are posted below along with my thoughts. 

K Lang reads their poem “Ghost’s Mouth."

I love the lines, “A ghost’s mouth / is shaped like / an old september” (Lang 1-3). They bring to my mind the transience of time and t...

Like a typical young adult with a transient lifestyle, I commonly find myself meeting new people. As we make friendly conversation, one of us usually ends up bringing up an inevitable question:

“Are you going to school right now?”

 I interviewed Tim Erickson, a former mentor of mine, for a number of reasons. Mainly, I thought that others like myself could learn from him and take his advice and implement it into their own writing. I thought that would be useful. I like his writing and enjoyed the...

I have ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder). ADHD is on a spectrum and is consequently different for everyone. My ADHD deals with inattention and executive dysfunction and inhibits me from getting things done regardless of effort. My tips on how to write when...

Over this past year, I read Trevor Noah’s, Born a Crime. It had such a strong impact on me that I read it multiple times in a row. My love for this book has led me to wonder what this memoir does that other books don’t. I have hated, or been disinterested in, every oth...

  1. Tommy Pico

This man is the definition of genius. His work is compelling and I believe that he must see poetry everywhere he goes.  He literally made a poem from a Twitter conversation he was involved in. One of the reasons I find Pico particularly compelling, out...

I think a writing voice is a lot like an accent: you can't hear your own and don't think you have one. Others can recognize your writing voice, but if you ask them to describe it, they may have trouble putting their fingers on what makes it unique. It's hard to pin dow...

December 7, 2018

When I write poems, I don't rely on poetry prompts. If a prompt is presented to me, I will have fun with it, but I don't use prompts in the poetry I want to get published. I approach my poetry differently than some writers. I feel that a poem is what it is. It has alwa...
