“I Hope You Like It” and more practical advice for poets from Hannah Gamble

I know this essay is a few years old, but it’s a good one, especially for young or relatively new poets.

I especially like point #3 (Do consider your reader’s experience.), though I think that issue could have been explored even further.

Anyway, check it out here at The Poetry Foundation.
