How to Grow a Poem
A poet talks to his fellow poets--and occasionally to himself--about where poems come from. This project is dedicated to my 12th-grade English teacher and lifelong friend, Phyllis Levitt, may she rest in poetry.
“Poet and author Ken Salzman digs in with various poets to explore the often enigmatic journey of a poem's creation and its oftentimes long life of revision. A fascinating study in the creative process.”
