Mojo Monday: Mark Grist’s “Girls Who Read”

It’s Mojo Monday, and as always, I’ve got a little something-something to lift your creative spirits, buoy you up, help you get your mojo on, and nudge (or better yet, catapult) you into writerhead.


Have you watched spoken word poet Mark Grist perform?

Whhhaaaattt? No?

Oy! Here’s your chance. This is Grist on why he likes girls who read. I love this! (And once you’ve watched, hunker down with a topic about which you’re passionate. Riff on it. Writerhead! Writerhead! Writerhead!)

Mojo Monday: A Trailer for a Collection of Poems?

I know! It sounds mad, doesn’t it?

A trailer for a collection of poems?

But when I found this trailer for Paul Legault’s second collection of poetry (The Other Poems) on the Poets & Writers web site, I was instantly charmed.

Charmed, charmed, charmed.

I think you will be, too.

The combination of Paul’s words, the images, and the spectacular music will make you smile.

And want to read his poems.

And want to write.

Promise.
