WestView has built my confidence, inspiring me and my poetic abilities. I know I would not have had the courage nor inclination to ‘compete’ with myself had George not suggested I ‘kernalize’, which I still struggle with. He ’stretches’ not only me, but everyone associated with the paper.
WestView granted me, a homespun neophyte poet with several poetry courses under my belt, and loaned me a truly enviable platform upon which to practice and build my craft/passion.
(My alma mater, University of Pennsylvania, last week accepted one of my poems for publication in this spring’s issue of Penn Review literary magazine!)
I finally want to learn about the process of writing. WestView was/is my springboard.
Thank you for the spark!!!
