We chatted with poet Carrie Green, who won our contest in poetry in 2013!
What are you reading right now?
I'm currently reading Asymmetry by Lisa Halliday and listening to The Giver on audio.
What is the most "pinchy" (kinda weird and cool) thing to happen to you recently?
The coolest thing I've done lately is visit the Pearl Fryar Topiary Garden in Bishopville, SC. I highly recommend it if you're down that way. I've wanted to go ever since I saw the documentary A Man Named Pearl.
Anything you're working on now that you want to hype?
"Abandoned" appears in the poetry manuscript I'm just starting to send out. Recent poems from the manuscript have appeared in Terrain.org, Poetry Northwest, and Beloit Poetry Journal.
Why should people enter The Pinch's contest?
Because you can be assured, win or not, that your poems will be in fine company.
We agree with that, Carrie! And not only your poems, but your fiction and nonfiction, too! Make sure to submit. The deadline is March 15th!
