Being passionate about good writing is an important trait for any writer. For Billiekai Boughton, an author, speaker, military vet, and more, her passion for the craft of writing is strong, evident, and welcomed.
In this episode of The Written Scene, Billiekai talks about the people we meet through writing about hard things, the experience of a class interpreting your poem without knowing you wrote it, learning to write poetry just for her, the need for art to be in dialogue with the audience, how she fell in love with writing at UC Berkeley, that anybody can write but not everybody can write well, that we're all born with our own spark and personalities, and much more.
