MC:

My list would be:

1. To write a book of poems that unapologetically centers on and celebrates artifacts of girlhood – the silly, frilly, sparkly, terrifying, awkward and gushingly sentimental.

2. To promote reciprocal and mutual love, friendship, fascination, intimacy and close communication; to imagine that Emily Dickinson’s last written words, “Called Back,” were about how she always called her friends back when she said she would.

3. So that girls and women who read it will feel empowered.
