Kim Addonizio reading in Walnut Creek + How A Poem Happens

One of my favorite poets, and my teacher, Kim Addonizio, is reading at the Walnut Creek Library on Tuesday night. Here's the Contra Costa Times announcement. Should be a great evening. Music too!

Brian Brodeur's blog How a Poem Happens is great reading if you want the behind-the-scenes story of notable poems. This week's interviewee is Gray Jacobik, with Brian asking questions about revision, the trigger for writing, what part inspiration plays, and all those wonderful things we talk about endlessly when poets get together.

Happy April poem-writing! (Or revising.)
