The Written Scene

Dec 12, 2023

For many writers, the joy of writing is unmatched by many things in life. For poet Katie Kemple, that joy is evident in her voice when it's merely brought up in a conversation.

In this episode of The Written Scene, Katie talks about how to sell poetry books in a non-traditional way, why travel and experience can help spark ideas, workshopping poetry before submitting for publication, why old and grizzled poets are the best editors, how poetry has an element of music to it, the ability to tell when a poem isn't right just from reading it out loud, why it's hard to write about the past, the allure of small art and making art just for the sake of art, how baseball is poetry, and much more.
