Back From The Woods
Winter is darkening the window, the one Hart Crane wrote about in “Fear,” the window on which licks the night, and out just beyond the ponderosa pines, November is mowing the caldera and I am thinking about Spontaneous Inner Space, and I am full of inspiration. And hope, too. Don’t forget hope.
Because we do need to be startled back into Life, transmuted and disturbed; because there is still value in the writer’s ability to, as Emily Dickinson puts it, believe and disbelieve a hundred times an hour.

Dr. Emily Carr, Program Director of the OSU-Cascades Low-Residency MFA in Creative Writing, in conversation with Phil Busse, Editor, The Source Weekly
In the October Source Media Salon at Broken Top Bottle Shop in Bend, Oregon, Dr. Carr talks about what motivates her to write poetry, what distinguishes poets from the secret police, how to access your fairytale brain (we all have one; yes, you do!), what’s up with semi-colons and rainbow smoke, & making a common language in which to sing “we.”

Dear Readers, Dear Fortune Seekers,
It is not foggy. The traffic is not enormous. It is not summer, I am not en route from Farewell Bend to Big Sur on the California pre-release tour for my third full-length collection, Up The Shinbone Superlatives, which is forthcoming from horseless press in May 2014, & I DO need your support to fund publication & promotions!
Your donation will support a small, kitchen-table press that relies on pre-orders to fund the publication of gorgeous perfect-bound books of cutting-edge American poetry. When you pre-order, you help keep the press going, you receive a discount off the regular cover price, you assure that you’re one of the first people who receive a copy when the books are released, AND you receive a unique hand-crafted gift from the poet (me!).
Like the adolescent female body, boutique literary presses are a critical index of the social & economic life of society as a whole—& I mean this quite literally, of course. Be a good citizen! Buy more poetry! Don’t wait: just do it!
In the meantime, here’s a little piece of Shinbones! and my Autopsy Lyrics, a pretty little book of erotic poems, which is still available from Little Red Leaves Textile Series. Many thanks for Casey Alduff for organizing this First Friday Studio One Reading in Oakland!
Dear Readers, Dear Fortune Seekers, I invite you to click on the image & enjoy the video!
