The Stories Between Us

Feb 20, 2023

How does a poet become a poet? Here is one of the many roads available, and it's shared by extraordinary poet Malcolm Guite: deciding to be a poet as a young man, then becoming a teacher, then a priest, where for seven years he didn't write poetry. Then burnout. And a bishop who told him to take a sabbatical. 

We offer this episode with huge thanks to Square Halo Books. This was recorded in front of a live audience at their recent conference, where Malcolm Guite was the keynote speaker. 

Also, our online writing community at The Stories Between Us is now open for registration from 2/20 - 2/26! And it's free to join. Just head HERE to find out more.
