On Becoming Famous
A local magazine, Suburban Essex Magazine, which is distributed to 100,000 homes in my area, has published a lovely article about me and the poetry festival I'm running on Sunday, May 17. Okay, so I'm not quite famous, but still it's really nice to have such a generous piece about me circulating.
The article is about how I got into writing poetry and publishing my work. There's an excerpt from a poem, and there's information about the upcoming festival. As a result of the article, I've been receiving a bunch of emails. A few poets who wanted to know how to get into the festival—too late for this year. A few who wanted more details on how I began getting my work published. And of course, a few who wanted to send me some poems for critiquing—sorry, no can do.
