Wow, it’s been a while. My Internet was down for a while there, but I’m back now.
And I have a problem.
Since finishing my MFA, I’ve been suffering from poetry burnout. I don’t want to write it, and I don’t want to read it. I’m not so worried about the writing end of things, since inspiration comes and goes and all, and I’m puttering away on revisions and submissions and non-fiction in the meantime, but the lack of urge to read is getting to me. I’m eating up novels and non-fiction, but poetry, not so much.
Has this ever happened to anyone else? Anyone have any great suggestions of poets or books to jump-start my stalled brain?
