A promised tomorrow for UNCW poet
by Jenny Yarborough
Thursday, December 3, 2009
Love, Jason Mott—University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) Creative Writing grad of both undergraduate (2006) and graduate (2008) programs—said, is one of the most overwritten subjects in the world, second only to death. Still, this is the subject he chose to write about in a collection of poetry that was later selected as a finalist in the 2009 Main Street Rag Poetry Contest.
“I would actually say that I didn’t choose the project, but it chose me,” the young poet said. And though Mott admits the topic could be cliché, he explained that doesn’t mean it can’t still be fresh and unique. It just takes more work to make it happen.
