If your answer to the question “What do you do for a living?” is “I’m an artist,” then we have a few more questions for you. Are you set up as a business, or are you simply an individual who creates under his or her own name?  Have you considered why the former might be better than the latter?  If art is your trade, why would you conduct your livelihood in any way less formal than other Main Street businesses?…

And in contrast to what is taught, poetry's most remarkable poems are not ideas of vertical complexity, but images, horizontal ideas, available to anyone who can read. One need not think any further than Walt Whitman and Robert Frost -- poetry needs us to find the poet in each of us, the poet who asks, "What can I give back to poetry itself?"   Central to…
