Wow, wow, wow!

One of my favourite poets is poet of the week over at Poetry SuperHighway this week. I just found out via Books Inq.

The first link will take you to a piece, Getting Lucky, which is such a cool take on the moon, by the poet Howard Miller, aka Hedgie.

I wonder what he taught in college? I bet his classes were always interesting. And, I've just found this ten questions post which gives an insight into how Howard thinks about poetry - a personal ars poetica.

Is that poem flash fiction?
Interesting interview. I agree about the tinkering, and sitting on things.

Thanks for introducing me to Howard. Barbara, you're going to breeze through A215.

Duh - Apprentice, I was jsut about to write a serious explanation to your question, and then I got it! Having a quiet chuckle here now...

Carole, you're welcome. I don't know about breezing through A215, but I do know that already I'm reaping the benefits of some very concentrated writing and lots of useful strategies for the dry periods. I'm already a third of the way though a writer's notebook... guess I should have bought a bigger one!

Ooh, thanks for the plug. I always appreciate the support. And I taught English, by the way.

Well that figures, Hedgie. Thanks for stopping by - you're welcome about the support!
