Introducing Julie Carr

By Poetry Foundation

This month, Harriet welcomes the poet, publisher, and teacher Julie Carr as our third "Craft Work" writer.

Carr is the author of four books of poetry, Mead: An Epithalamion (UGA press), Equivocal (Alice James), 100 Notes on Violence (Ahsahta, winner of the Sawtooth Prize), and Sarah-Of Fragments and Lines (Coffee House, a NPS selection). Her book on late Victorian poetry is forthcoming from Dalkey Archive. She teaches English and Creative Writing at the University of Colorado at Boulder and is the co-publisher, with Tim Roberts, of Counterpath Press.

“Craft Work” features poets, translators, editors, and publishers writing about the creative work done in their respective fields. Harriet hosts a featured writer on a bimonthly basis, and periodically present live discussions between “Craft Work” writers and readers. If you have questions you would like writers to consider beforehand, or if you would like to suggest a “Craft Work” contributor, please e-mail craftwork@poetryfoundation.org.
