"Poetry is the language of a state of crisis."

Aidan Chambers

"I write to read the stories I cannot live otherwise."


"She who wields a pen, wages war."

Katie Kerr

"Poetry is honesty, unabridged by the truth."

S. J. O'Brien

"Life's too short for bad coffee, and too long for expensive liquor."

The Lost Art of Curating

I don't submit my poetry to groups—not even ones I'm a member of. Except for contest entries, every group feature you see on my deviations was requested by the group. I may get less exposure, but the exposure I do get is that much more valuable to me.

So, what would happen if everybody adopted this attitude? Or even just a small majority? You might see more artists who were "okay with just being okay" start actively honing their craft again, and how is that a bad thing?

You're Welcome

There. Now you don't have to waste your time thanking me for that fave. Go write something awesome so I can give you another one.
