Aspiring Poets

Your poetry collection, The Hill We Climb and Other Poems, comes out in December. Is there any advice you’d give to aspiring poets, in terms of the creative process? Great readers make great writers. Read as much as you can, both to discover how your voice echoes other authors’ as well as to realize what makes you unmistakably unique from them. For so long, my voice was the thing I was most ashamed of, and now it is the thing I’m most proud of. It is a power no one can take away from me.
