“I’m not as good at this as I should be!” “Why can’t I write like…” There are always going to be innumerable frustration when you are writing.

I've never been able to muster up much interest in haiku which usually...

I do not understand why women consider themselves the second sex. Why did Carol Ann Duffy think “long and hard” before accepting the position of Britain’s Poet Laureate? Is it because she is “the first woman and lesbian to hold the royal post in its 341-year history”? Did she not already know her...
