Writer’s Statement and Backstories Behind Poems

Hey guys! What are your thoughts on Writer’s Statements? I just finished mine, and I’m wondering what everyone did. Like, I mainly tried to connect parts of my poetry back to sound, but half the time I wanted to talk about how I’ve changed as a writer or the story behind a poem. Every poem has a story behind it, from “this was a defining point in my life” to “I don’t know, I thought it sounded cool and ran with it.” I tried to keep as much out of my writer’s statement as possible, but a bit did come out about a poem or two. So, this is an open invitation for anyone who just wants to tell the story behind their poem.
