Poetry Sundays with Stacia.

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

Check out the inaugural article right here! Hope you like it! If you’d got suggestions or would like to be featured, please be sure to let me know!
