Myself, Jane Hoogestraat, and Karen Craigo comparing poems and giving good advice in preparation for a Poets of Faith special issue for Rattle. I show this, not because I love having my photograph taken (most definitely not!), but to show the scut work of poetry and how even poets with many, many published poems like Craigo or with a book coming out soon  like Hoogestraat still do the daily work of poetry, which means lots of revision and finding ways post-grad to gain the perspective that trading poems and talking about them can give.
