  • 8. It's been fun being part of National Poetry Day 2012 thanks to you A strange combination of importance and pride with the feeling that I'm just a small part of something bigger. Makes me feel more creative than if I wrote one or two lines of poetry on my own. It made me smile! I felt happy. I felt like I'd made a real contribution to the poem. I felt like a poet.
  • 9. All writing is in fact cut-ups. A collage of words read heard overheard. - William S. Burroughs, 1963
