One of the best aspects of my still-nascent poetry practice is my rediscovery and new enjoyment of poetry-only journals. One of these publications, Smartish Pace, runs a wonderful online feature, "Poets Q&A," in which readers can submit questions to prominent practitioners of the craft; the poets respond, and a full set of questions and answers appears online.
Until November 6, you can submit a question for Carol Muske-Dukes. In the meantime you can enjoy the archive of questions and answers. I haven't made it through the entire list quite yet, but the respondents include Eavan Boland, Bob Hicok, and Robert Pinsky, among others.
Have a great weekend, and see you back here on Monday.
