Goodreads asked Ronnie K. Stephens:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Ronnie K. Stephens Read. Read. Read. Too many writers write in a vacuum. This is especially true of poets. I've never met a group so bent on "not being influenced." But the fact remains - you cannot become a better writer without being a great reader.
