Helped by friends, Albert Hagenaars started ‘Poets about poetry’, a weblog which will focus especially on statements by Dutch en Flemish poets, like:

How I write a poem? Quite simply, like a rooster lays an egg.
Martinus Nijhoff

Poetry is listening backward and looking forward.
Remco Campert

Poetry is the only domain where ignorance can beat academicism.
Herman De Coninck

When I have a final line in mind
I try to write a poem with it
and when I have a first line
it may become a story

sometimes I just have a line.

Frans Mink
