Emily Dickinson

May 16, 2012 in Briefs

With her lifetime production of 1,700 poems, Emily Dickinson was one of the most prolific poets of all time.

You could replicate her feat by writing a poem a day (five a week) for less than eight years.

I did it for one year — and during the process my skills definitely improved. I don’t know if any of my poems will ever match her best stuff… but I know now that my good poems are better than her weak ones.
