Interview + Report + interview prep
I loved this! As a journalist, getting to read other people's writing is beyond crucial to my craft. I honestly am not the biggest fan of reading (even though I know how beneficial it can be) and have a hard time with poetry because of its ambiguity and artistry— I find that if you're not the one writing it, it can be hard to understand. I edited/ made comments on about 20 poems and I have to say, I'm very impressed. Some writers were anonymous, and others included an anecdote about their poem. For instance, there was one by Alex C (I edited a lot of his work, he showed up a lot on my feed, not sure why), which was a response to the question "what does freedom of speech mean?" The characters in his poem were flowers and nature, which seems to be a motif throughout his writing. I thought it was interesting the way he connected the human right of free speech to the basic right to life (via plants and nature). If I were asked the same question, even in a poem, I would not have thought about nature. Granted, he's a 33 year old man (as told by his anecdote), so his outlook is obviously different. I had a lot of fun!
