The Saturday Writing Quote

“I think you find your voice when you quit censoring yourself. It isn’t external. It’s inside you. The reason [you aren’t] using it is the voice is being suppressed, usually because of some kind of decorum. … What are you keeping out of your writing? Allowing those things into your writing is ultimately how you find your voice.”

– Billy Collins, U.S. Poet Laureate 2001-03
