My Interviews

My new chapbook “Footnote” published by Lithic Press + Nancy Chen Long interviews me for details!

Lithic Press creates beautiful, high quality books and I couldn’t be more honored and excited to become one of their authors. Huge thanks to artist Kyle Harvey for his perfect design of the cover art and to Danny Rosen for his patience and kindness throughout the editing process. I can barely wait to hold one of these beauties in my hands!

Chapbook Chat: Trish Hopkinson Discusses Footnote

“What elegant control and preciseness in Trish Hopkinson's chapbook, Footnote. These response poems pay homage to the greats--artists, singers, filmmakers and other writers like Amiri Baraka, Octavio Paz, Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson, Rainer Maria Rilke, Ai, Janis Joplin, and Pablo Neruda. In "A Room Made of Poetry," a found poem from Laura Hamblin's The Eyes of a Flounder, Hopkinson writes: "Here you can wait,/ with desire, with/ roots exposed/ for an open womb. That heart-balm/ as hope./ The raw bent/-- a bowl of fruit/  in a language I never knew . . ." This is exactly the feeling these poems evoke: in the rhythm of response and found poems, and forms like reverse snowballs and erasures, Hopkinson covers so much ground, giving readers a taste of art from across the centuries and the world. Footnote must simply be savored and re-read.”
-Nicole Rollender, author of Louder Than Everything You Love and Ghost Tongue
