At my college, creative writing majors had to choose between one of two concentrations: fiction or poetry. I chose fiction, but was always curious about trying my hand at poetry. A few years later, I attended a workshop in New York and read a poem (which I had written that morning) to a group of ten or fifteen writers. It was such a rush, and afterward, I vowed to write poetry more often - sadly, I haven't written a single stanza since.
Artist Nina Katchadourian's poetry, constructed using the words written on the spines of books, has me thinking about starting again. Such a cool and creative idea.
