Poetry as a Profession

In an increasingly streamlined, technological, and competitive world of professional employment, a career in writing

poetry may seem like an impractical choice. While the challenge of developing a professional writing career cannot

be denied, 1 perspiring poets can look to their successful twentieth and twenty-first century counterparts for models

of sustainable career paths. These examples demonstrate that one of the best ways to "be" a poet 2 are to be many

other things as well: 3 when writing computer code, an individual is cultivating the same precision and attention to

detail that is required to write poetry.

Many successful contemporary poets pursue other forms of employment, considering these jobs not as

obstacles 4 but instead of sources of inspiration. W. S. Di Piero, an Italian-American poet, also works as a translator;

when discussing the relationship between translation and poetry, he identified them both as a “quest for recognitions,”

noting that 5 “a translation needs a cultural entourage.” The supplemental career does not even need to be directly

related to writing in order to provide valuable inspiration. Consider, 6 for example, William Carlos Williams who

worked as a physician for over forty years. Some of his most poignant poems were inspired by his patients. In his

own words, a medical career was “the very thing which made it possible for me to write.”

7 Although they provide varying levels of financial support, supplemental careers also broaden the experience of

individuals—and this breadth inevitably shapes their work. For instance, the famous poet Maya Angelou pursued

diverse career paths as 8 a prose writer, producing, civil rights activist, and more. From “Caged Bird” to “On the

Pulse of Morning,” some of her greatest poems are grounded by her own experience in the civil rights struggle. A

poet’s experience, though, can also influence his or her writing in more subtle ways. Luci Tapahonso, the current

poet laureate of the Navajo nation, is committed to serving her community on local, 9 state, and national levels, a

strong sense of cultural identity pervades her work.

Poetry composition is neither an easy nor an impossible career—it simply requires hard work, dedication, and the

commitment to writing above all else. 10 Yet of all possible careers, perhaps writing poetry is one of the most

necessary in our contemporary context. While coding languages and technology turn over with 11 ever-increasing,

greater frequency, the words of Homer and Shakespeare remain; even when an entire culture disappears, writing is

one of the few things that persists.
