Abstract:
Chapel Hill poet Paul Jones attempts to explain why poets write poetry and why they meet to share their writing. Jones tells a humorous story of a poetry reading at Cat’s Cradle with an ex-convict with a gun. Jones says episodes like this make him question why he organizes poetry workshops. He decides poets are motivated because of their desire to share, to learn, to be taken serious, to be published, and to be challenged.
