Recently I got to spend some time with Valeri Beers, a published poet from Maine in the USA. Using the opportunity, I asked her to give us some insight into her writing style.
MS: Valeri, you are a published author. Why do you write?
Valeri: Because I feel like I have to write these ideas, poems, lines or words down or I will lose them.
MS: What has had influence on your writing?
Valeri: Music has always been a huge influence on my writing. I have always been inspired to write when listening to music.
MS: Who are some of your favourite authors?
Valeri: I really like Erica Jong, Dorothy Parker, Maya Angelou, Nicholson Baker, Stephen King
MS: What is your latest publication and where can it be purchased?
Valeri: My latest publication is my poetry book …details… , which can be purchased on Amazon as an e-book or print book.
MS: What are you working on next?
Valeri: At this very moment, I am choosing a poem to be included in an anthology. I hope to publish another book of poetry or maybe edit an anthology.
MS: Tell me a little about PoetryPasta
Valeri: PoetryPasta loves to show off new poets and their words. I try to share educational, funny, positive and encouraging. Send me a poem!
MS: Thanks for your time do you have anything you would like to add?
Valeri: You are most welcome Malobi :) Thank YOU for this opportunity :)
