sry to revive a dead thread but I just wanted to say all of you are the coolest people and the two months we all made art together was not just super-duper fun but completely life-changing for me. I decided to apply to MFA programs and I managed to get accepted into a fully funded school (non-CIA edition…I hope) where I’m gonna have the chance to study, teach, and most importantly write poetry while kinda being able to feed myself (still need a PT job tho lmao). everything I wrote here (after several edits) made into my work sample. I had basically given up on writing when I 20 bc the elitism was such a bummer. heck even recently last year I was advised to stop talking about such niche shit in my poems but this forum and this community gave me a space to do my thing with so many lovely kind supportive folks. and it’s not just this thread but the whole forum and the podcast itself because I’m continuously just so moved by people engaging in their passions critically and emphatically. so fr fr shout out everybody, much love always, and thank you for always keeping the dialogue goin.
