Full interview with Jane Arthur here


Poetry is an enormous part of your life! So I ask: why poetry? What’s so great about it?

Ah, I have loved poems since I was very, very young, because I loved writing that sounded good when I performed it.

No matter what has been going on in my life (all the peaks and hurdles), poetry fits in beautifully, like a little knapsack I can take anywhere. Poetry can do anything: it can be small like breath on a fogged window or big like a storm. For me, reading and writing poetry is like an energy boost that makes me feel good.
