the poet peter minter on what he does when ‘stuck’:

“Go out, watch TV, READ POETRY, read junk mail, think about stuff, go for a swim, cook dinners, READ POETRY, listen to music, see movies, have sex, talk, go shopping, wander around looking, READ POETRY, sleep, go for a run, read philosophy, do some gardening, read a novel, have a bbq, go to the beach, go to a gallery, READ POETRY, count the number of cats between here and the next place, etc…”

he is interviewed by rosanna licari in the latest stylus.

interesting that he mentions you should go & force your local bookshop to order books of poetry for you, rather than ordering them online, thereby creating demand for poetry. something i hadn’t really thought of. but worth doing i guess.
