hyacinths & biscuits

i started a poetry resource blog for my past and present writing students:

hyacinths and biscuits

the title comes from a Carl Sandburg quote “poetry is the synthesis of hyacinths and biscuits”

Sandburg isn’t my favorite ever but i think this is one of my favorite “definitions” of poetry, hence the title.

i’m planning to use H&B to post writing contests and prompts, industry news, articles, anything i think would be useful to a budding writer.

  1. Just visited hyacinths and biscuits — it's so great! Thank you for organizing such great resources and making them available to all. Enjoy your sabbatical — I'm a big fan of the occasional writing sabbatical (that is to say, a sabbatical *from* writing).
