Great news! Starting today, I’ll be writing a Sunday column for journalist/novelist/co-memoirist-to-the-stars Aliya S. King’s website!
I’ve started to write poetry again this year, after a seven-year hiatus. So Aliya has invited me to write about my return to the genre in an ongoing series of Sunday posts.
Poetry Sundays with Stacia will discuss:
– the ups and downs of the poetry-writing process
– the works of poetry legends like Gwendolyn Brooks, Robert Hayden, Sonia Sanchez, and Langston Hughes
– the works of contemporary poets like Suji Kwock Kim, Major Jackson, Tara Betts, and Randall Horton
– elements of poetic craft, such as musicality, internal rhyme, voice, and form/structure
It’ll also feature:
– Poetry Vlogs submitted by readers
– Interviews with burgeoning and renowned poets
– Poetic works-in-progress by myself and other guest contributors
