How to be a Poet

Poetry is the journal of the sea animal living on land, wanting to fly in the air. Poetry is a search for syllables to shoot at the barriers of the unknown and the unknowable. Poetry is a phantom script telling how rainbows are made and why they go away. Carl Sandburg, Poetry Considered

In honor of National Poetry Month I wrote my 30th article for eHow.

How to be a Poet.

I’ll be back Monday with a writing prompt.

  1. I think that it is very hard to be a poet. Full-time poets make financial sacrifices for the rest of their lives.

    Who are your favourite poets?

  2. Hey, WritingNag. Just wanted to say how much I love your blog. Also, I just posted How To Live A Poet’s Life on which is a response to the How to be Poet post. Hope you like it. Also, I would like to interview you for my blog, let me know if you’re interested.

  3. Ian,
    Thanks for the question, I think I will have to write a post on my favorite poets. I keep adding to my list but look for a post soon.

  4. Thanks LoudPen,

    I’m going to go read your post as soon as I comment on this. And yes I’d be interested in an interview. I love that a post inspired you to write. Keep writing!
