Kate Baer Is Speaking Truth. From Her Minivan.
Who says motherhood can't be literary, even poetic? Before the pandemic, when she could afford a babysitter, Kate Baer…
I like this for a few reasons:
- Typical poetry is being dismantled
- It’s relatable. Kate’s poetry captures a *moment* and though it may not last long (who knows?) most writing doesn’t. There are lots of writers who sold a lot at the time, but we don’t continue to study for whatever reason.
- I’m glad she made money
- People are interested in poetry again
- This woman worked hard at her writing. Lots of writers are doing this, few feel the breakthrough.
