hi there ! i'm a poet too. I've been performing my stuff for about 4 years now, and it's taken my work so much further. Thats what inspires me - hearing good poetry performed, and doing it myself, and just feeling part of an amazing thing. I'm lucky that where I live is very culturally diverse and there are always cool things happening, like outdoor poetry festivals etc.
i also think poetry groups are a great thing, my regular tuesday night group has been wonderful...the feedback is so important, and to hear other peoples' stuff. are you part of a regular group? I cant make meetings anymore as i have a young baby but i'm ok with that for now.
I have a poem coming out in an anthology on 'goddess/woman' themes very soon, which I'm excited about. At the moment though am not writing much new stuff, mainly re-working old things and concentrating on my novel and non-fiction writing.
