The Poet Sarah Kay on How We Measure Creative Success


When discussing the legitimacy of her poetry, Sarah Kay answers, “I think my work, from a broad perspective — by this I mean my work as a writer, teacher, organizer, human — is about trying to invite people in and create spaces where people feel welcome and comfortable with poetry, but are still creatively challenged.
