About the author

The Simple Things - - ESCAPE | EXPLORING -

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.
