I am writing this blog to describe my journey as a poet. I have written poetry since I was a child, but only recently started writing hoping to be paid and/or published. This blog will detail what I discover about poetry writing as a profession. I have two categories of poetry, general poetry and math poetry, mainly for elementary school students.
I had stopped writing poetry a couple of years ago, when I decided to learn Math Common Core objectives in order to tutor elementary school students. While studying using two books on the objectives, I surprised myself by becoming inspired to write poetry about the topics. Then, I was at a bookstore and found books on how to write poetry, something I had never read before. So, I started writing and that brings me to where I am today, trying to write often about different subjects.
My goal is to be published and earn some money. The future blogs will depict that journey.
