A quote attributed to Ross by Kaveh Akbar on Twitter



has become the star I guide my workshops by:

"If the critique does not emerge from love, then I'm probably not interested."

I'm in love with what tenderness can do in a beginning poetry workshop, the way it makes poets out of everyone, the way it allows new writers to feel seen, the way it fights the fucking patriarchy.
