Just a poet …

… Ada Limón Makes Poems for a Living - The New York Times. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)

She manages this career, in part, by embracing poetry as a form that is meant to be not just quietly read, but also performed aloud. A former theater major who gets a charge out of performing, she earns much of her income by giving frequent readings and hosting a poetry podcast called “The Slowdown,” in which she shares the work of other poets.
