I want to bring poetry to those who say they DON’T like poetry or don’t “get it”. Sometimes there is nothing to get! We just need to read it. Just like Albert Camus expressed my poetry is my passion AND my revolt!

    A YouTube Channel Coming On Poetry and Writing.

    A YouTube Channel Coming On Poetry and Writing.

    Yes! I’ve taken the plunge. I have mixed feelings about a YouTube channel in general. BUT poetry is SO important to me that I decided to take the leap and see how it goes. It has the same name as this podcast and I’m going to discuss in person a lot of the same things I discuss here only you’ll get to see my face and facial expressions, which can be comical. It’s all about the language and the writing. Have a listen. The Goods: https://www.kazakers.com https://www.amazon.com/dp/8182537479

    The New Year AND Meditation 4 All!!

    I send out a frequently infrequent newsletter on whatever comes to mind. The newest one addresses the new year, my work with an accountability partner and… Drum Roll… my commencement teaching meditation; but this time online. It’s free! What’s better than that? I will address meditation for writers and poets but also for people in general. So everyone is welcome! The Goods: https://www.kazakers.com https://www.amazon.com/dp/8182537479

    EVERYONE Is A Writer! Yes, YOU!

    EVERYONE Is A Writer! Yes, YOU!

    Even if you aren’t a poet, author or blogger you’re still a writer. You write emails, documents and presentations for work, college papers and thesis, grant proposals, love notes, and on and on. Here I continue to discuss the importance of writing… and getting it right (write? 🤣). My book and website: https://www.amazon.com/dp/8182537479 https://www.kazakers.com

    For Writers and Others: Do Not Believe Simply Because You Have Heard It!

    For Writers and Others: Do Not Believe Simply Because You Have Heard It!

    I found this quote and for me it nails so much about writing. It’s actually referring to life in general but it really applies to my writing and the writing I read of other poets, authors, etc. it’s just a slight variation on the theme of “do not believe everything you hear“.

    Malapropisms, Faux Pas, Bad Idioms And Our Creativity.

    Malapropisms, Faux Pas, Bad Idioms And Our Creativity.

    Mixed and incorrect metaphors and idioms, glaring improper pronunciation of words or just making the whole dang thing up. Webster-Merriam dictionary is accepting incorrect words because they’re said so often. People aren’t paying attention or correcting their speech or writing. Does that mean they’re taking the path of least resistance? Are we dumbing down our speech and writing? I don’t mean slang or wordplay. We’ve gotten sloppy and we’re not listening. But then again will your readers or your listeners know the difference? My website and book: https://www.kazakers.com https://www.amazon.com/dp/8182537479

    When The Sh!? Hits The Fan Nurture Yourself. Let It Inspire You Instead Of Break You!

    Off the cuff stream of consciousness episode. We all have had emergencies that have thrown us for a loop and we have to change nearly our entire lives at a moment’s notice. Personal, mental, physical upheavals. Let’s adjust our thinking and allow our surroundings to inspire us. Finding the gems and taking the lemons but not doing the traditional thing with them… as you will hear. Letting your writing, or whatever it is you do creatively, to support and nurture you.
