    Fear of the Bad Poem: Open the Door to New Writing Possibilities

    Confront your fears and generate new material for your writing. Speak to yourself through encouraging and fun exercises. Welcome new possibilities. Experiment, surprise yourself, and—yes—dare to fail, which can often result in otherwise unconsidered success.

    Carrie Fountain’s poems have appeared in American Poetry Review, Tin House, Poetry, and other publications.
