  2. Thank you for introducing me to the wonderful Matt Harvey!! I so understand about having such a short attention span that poetry seems a natural recourse to do! I wish him all the best with his many writing projects - especially the ones inspired by his children!

    Take care

  4. I think it's great advice to think of yourself as a reader first, a writer second. We all long to write but we need to be readers too! Good interview :)

  5. Awesome interview. Thank you, Madeleine and Matt.

    Poetry is not really my thing, so don't put me into the draw.

  7. Brill interview - love to hear of people doing Performance Poetry. Will show this blog to a twit I met recently who informed me that poetry was only ever designed to be read to oneself, not out loud (I don't think he could've ever heard of Shakespeare!)
    Will look out for Matt's work and well done Madeleine on the interview
