#AmWriting: Poetry, Etc.

Big World wants to provide a space where writers can talk about what they’re working on. If you want to write a brief post about what you’re working on, please contact us at big.world.writing.club [at] gmail.com.

Last week, I wrote 17 haiku.

The week before that, I wrote three poems inspired by what I was seeing and hearing and feeling in the world. Kentucky Derby snapshots on Instagram. Jhene Aiko music. Articles about Brittney Griner, Glory Johnson and intimate partner violence in queer communities.

Poetry is helping me work through some things. Helping me breathe through All of The Things.
