The Written Scene


Jan 9, 2024

For publisher and poet Adam Stutz, writing doesn't come easy. And while he doesn't expect it to, he also wouldn't want it any other way.

In this episode of The Written Scene, Adam (the guest, not the host) discusses the lifespans and handoffs of poetry readings, how the LA scene is different than the SD scene, the creative ways of publishing and sharing poetry, why it's difficult to get paid as a poet, his introduction to poetry via The Simpsons, how starting Broken Lens Journal became his poor man's MFA, why reading is essential for a writer, the joy of editing, the effectiveness of short and punchy writing, and so much more.
