I slacked off for a couple of days, but I managed to write a poem for Day 19 of NaPoWriMo. Hopefully I will be able to make up for poems 17 and 18 over the weekend.
Speaking of the weekend, this Saturday I will be on a panel discussing confessional poetry (and how to write poetry based on your life without sounding like a coffeehouse-dwelling teen) at the Conversations and Connections Conference, here in DC.
C&C is focused on practical, nuts-and-bolts writing advice, and there's still time to register! Check out a list of the workshops and panels here.
