It is essential to remember that behind every poet, big or small, is a person: a living, breathing, human being, with a very real life, and very real experiences. Every one has a different reason to write, and every one has a different voice.
It is important to remember that the poetry community is filled with many diverse people.
Thus, I have today more highlights from interviews with a couple of real poets here on dA; Hopefully, after reading them, you will have a greater understanding of two of your fellow poets.
