from David Wright

"To be a faithful writer is to contend with so many forces tugging on our fidelities. We can be faithful to experience, to language, to communities, to audiences, to the self, to forms, to traditions, to innovation, to family, to moral, political or spiritual convictions. But more often than we'd like, we cannot keep all these faiths at once."

- by David Wright, from Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Creative Writing Classroom, for Poet's Quarterly
