About the author
AE Stallings is an American poet who studied classics in Athens, Georgia, and now lives in Athens, Greece. Her advice for budding poets is to write about things you like and to “read a lot of poetry. Memorise it so it becomes part of your brain.” ‘Fairy-tale Logic’ is a good place to start.
