makes me fall in love with poetry every day
All of her work has helped me through the tough time of my childhood. I am now a better person and can overcome anything. #believetoachieve
Margaret Atwood's styles so natural.... it flows from the heart to the ink of the pen and onto the paper surface (that's my attempt at poetry) It encourages wannabe poets like me... to take courage that poetry writing is not so complicated... a view Ms Atwood (a poet with a string of awards) endorses A BIG THANK YOU
