Let’s talk about Sex…

Sex is one of those big topics that people either encourage others to write about or discourage others to even think about! It is hard to write about because whether you make love or screw (for lack of a better word), it’s personal. It’s about you and your needs versus your wants. Sex is push and pull, it’s something you must be really comfortable writing about to do it right. And by right I mean, translating what’s in your head to the page accurately.

Your comfort zone:

Sex is not something that everyone’s experienced, nor is it something that everyone wants. Continue reading Let’s talk about Sex…

Poet of the Month: Lang Leav

Hello everyone! I am so sorry for the lengthy wait for this post. I was in Puerto Rico then I returned to school and moved into a new place. So, I’ve been busy. But don’t think that I haven’t been thinking about you all and what I wanted to write next. This month’s Poet of the Month is Lang Leav. She is my favorite poet. I could live my entire life on her poetry alone, she is so talented.
I wanted to do Lang Leav right away because her new book came out in September of last year. However, Continue reading Poet of the Month: Lang Leav

When you shouldn’t write

I am a firm believer in writing every single day. I really try to do so. But honestly, that get’s hard to do especially if you have a job that doesn’t include writing. I am a full-time student in my third year of college and sometimes I go two weeks without writing because I just have too much work to do. But I want to give you some reasons not to write, and what you can do during those non-writing times that will help you when you return to the paper and pen.

Reasons not to Write:

1. You are too overwhelmed with: work, school, family
Take that time and finish what you need to get done. I’m not saying that writing isn’t important. I’m Continue reading When you shouldn’t write

Feature: Hood Student reflects on his passion for Poetry

Today I met with a well-known student in the Hood College community, Jamone Davis. Jamone is a Senior majoring in Mass Communications with a concentration in Broadcast Journalism. He is known for his inspiring and emotional poetry performances on campus and within the Frederick community, like his performance in the school’s talent show and his opening poem for March on Frederick.

He has been writing poetry since he was in the 6th grade and continues to write today for himself and the pleasure of performing. Like many of us writers, he writes to vent and to express himself through writing about life experiences that either he or the people around him have experienced.

“If I see someone going through something I write about it, what I feel I write,” Davis said.

Jiselle’s Evergreen: Where to draw inspiration

Inspiration for writing poetry derives from what you find yourself thinking and writing about most. Most writers and poets tend to write about things with similar themes, whether they write about people, events or things. There are many young poets today that usually write about specific subjects. For example, poetry couple Lang Leav and Michael Faudet are both published successful poets whose inspiration is drawn from different things. Michael Faudet writes about sex, a lot. If you are a follower of his work, like I am, then you will notice he usually tells his readers up front that his poetry is about sex. Lang Leav writes a lot about relationships; past, present and future. She writes about the destruction of relationships and the creation of relationships.
