In the second episode of SAY SOMETHING, ANYTHING, we get rowdy at the Live Wire bar, where funky poet Sunny Rey and I substitute coffee for some bloody marys and talk about how cool poetry can be. Sunny lets listeners know that when it comes to writing, nothing is off limits.
“You are an absolute nobody that has a story like everybody has a story, but what’s going to make yours different is the fact that you wrote it the fuck down.”
She gives new writers advice on forgetting about an audience, being inspired by anything, and how the internet can help you get started.
Sunny also shares two poems. Her opening one is inspired by her work at a homeless shelter on a particularly aggressive day, while her second ventures into a different kind of heartbreak (the love kind.)
Sunny Rey’s book, Quotes and Poems by a Nobody, is available on amazon as well as Barnes & Noble. Also make sure to follow Sunny on her Facebook Page – as you’ll hear in the podcast, she loves to hear from you.
