Not only do I write poetry, I read a lot of poetry so that I can steal really good lines from other poets. This is not called plagiarism. This is called "the craft."
I've recently gone on a reviewing kick. Why read and steal from the collections only when I can also write about them? And judge them publicly? I mean, I do it already on Goodreads as you already know from my Bookshelf page, so why not for journals?
And so, the Winter 2014 edition of Gently Read Literature has published two reviews I wrote, one for Emma Bolden’s poetry collection Maleficae and another for John Gosslee’s Blitzkrieg.
I wonder if I'll start reading poetry reviews and stealing from them too.
