poet-quotation

If you’re looking for quotes about poetry, this post is a good place to start.

I recently made a post, to which I shall continue to add, in which I shared some of my favourite writing quotes.

However, I felt that this post could potentially become very long and confusing.

So, I’m experimenting here with the idea of being more specific in a post, about which particular type of writing quotes. This should make it easier for visitors to find the precise quotes to meet their needs.

For even more writing quotes, follow me on: Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

My posts, How To Write Poetry and The Relevance of Modern Poetry, might be of interest.
