Vocation, vocation, vocation [UK]:
"Shortly before the recent Forward prizes for poetry were awarded, I was rung up by a journalist who was trying to talk to all the poets on the shortlist for best collection. She asked me why so few young people considered poetry as a career, and whether I had anything to say to those who might have it in mind. This struck me as a strange and original approach, and I replied with a laugh that poetry was more like an affliction than a career. As luck would have it, I was among the prizewinners, and the next day the Independent ran a piece headlined: 'This is no way to earn a living, says prize-winning poet.'"
