19 | Poet Kate Baer On Using Your Critics To Fuel Your Art Create Out Loud With Jennifer Louden

    • Arts

Bestselling poet Kate Baer has a beautifully truthful relationship with motherhood, with social media, with internet trolls, and with being a woman. It's wrestling with all of this that inspires her poetry, poetry women love (and some men are threatened by) because she tells the truth.

Listen to how Kate uses her life, and her critics, to know her truth and develop her craft. It's incredibly brave. Among other topics, Jen and Kate also discuss:

- How social media complicates creativity but also lead partially to Kate's new poetry book

- Why "a-ha moments" may be a myth

- How to not get a trapped in a certain medium

- What lead her to write her newest book (hint: it wasn't what I thought!)
