Reading and Writing Inter-Are

What you have to do, I believe, is to believe that there is a reader, a listener, a needer, within yourself, who corresponds closely to those readers out there, and you have to satisfy that element of yourself which needs the poem that nobody else has written and that the active part of you, the writer, is writing.

–Denise Levertov
