“we felt that if we worked on something together, we would help to push each other through”
” how to write about something so massive, so pervasive, so threatening?”
A behind the scenes look at running a poetry collective
“It’s really important to work together. It goes back to community. it’s important for womxn to support one another”
I think that human tenacity inspires me. Our bounce back-ability, you know? That we can recover from so many things. And I think something else that inspires me is that we really have everything in us that we already need. Who we are is already inside of us, is already there, and it’s just a question of unearthing it. So, when I write stories, novels, I think they are about people unearthing themselves.
