15 | Poet Tamkio Beyer On Creative Play And Freedom

Tamiko Beyer's acclaimed poetry collection Last Days, was assembled from a collection of poetry written over the course of decade, which speaks to Tamiko's sense of open-minded freedom and patience when it comes to work. For Tamiko, the creative process is all about leaving space for play and imagination. By relieving the pressure and intensity of "generating a product" when it comes to our work, we actually create more space to tell the truth and generate our best, most authentic work.

In this conversation, we also discuss:

- How creative playfulness can enact social change

- How capitalism has corrupted the creative process

- How to re-think book launches

- Craft advice for writing poetry

- How Tamiko's multi-language household informs her work
