I Don’t Call Myself a Poet was created with the hope of being part of a bigger conversation about poetry — and this page will keep you posted about who’s talking about the site and how! If you’ve used the site in a workshop or assignment, leave a comment so we can trace how the ripples are spreading…

  • Her interview is Autumn News for Aoife Mannix on her website
