In the Words of John A. Williams

“Poetry is always good to keep the juices flowing. Poetry is the training for any writer. For fiction writers, I’d have them write poetry for a year. It gives you a sense of voice, rhythm, economical use of words for power and mood. It teaches you to be brief. You don’t want to bore your reader.” John Williams
