Poets on Poetry: DOUGLAS FLORIAN

In celebration of National Poetry Month, I will be sharing in each post during April a favorite quote from a favorite poet on poetry. Enjoy!

"I would offer this advice: Work hard but work smart. Keep your eyes open, your ears open, and your mind open. But close your mouth. Talking too much about a book before you finish it is a mistake. What surprises me is how I'm still able to do this without getting bored or relying on formulas. The industry itself has  become too industrious and not nearly illustrious enough." - Douglas Florian
