I do believe that one's writing life needs to be kept separate from Po-Biz. Personally, I deal with this by not attending too many poetry readings, primarily reading dead poets or poems in translation, reading Poets & Writers only once for grant/contest information before I quickly dispose of it, and not reading Poetry Daily. Ever.More Cate Marvin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I place a lot of emphasis on process and revision because I believe that all of my students can become better writers through hard work.More Cate Marvin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
New York is one of those places people tend to derive a sense of identity from - as if, were to you to remove them from the City, they'd turn limp and colorless.More Cate Marvin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The cool thing about having a book is that it takes on its own life. Once it's in the world, you can't follow it. You'd have to have a pretty fantastic surveillance system to track its migration.More Cate Marvin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I prefer poems that occupy an imaginative sphere. When I lived in Cincinnati, I was occasionally referred to as an "Ohio Poet;" this made me uneasy, not only because I think of myself as a generally American poet but also because I like to think I write out of the country of my own mind.More Cate Marvin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
