My Interviews

“For the Art: An Interview with Trish Hopkinson” via Former People by C. Derick Varn

It was a great pleasure to be interviewed by C. Derick Varn, Managing Editor of Former People: A Journal of Bangs and Whimpers. I was fortunate enough to meet Derick in person at the Utah Poetry Festival in April and very much enjoyed the questions he asked and working with him on this interview as well as interviewing him for the Former People submission call I posted in May. They are open year-round, definitely check that out if you’re looking for an interesting lit mag with a pretty cool aesthetic to send your work.

Here’s an excerpt:

What poets have you been reading lately that you feel are not read enough and what attracts you to them?

I’d say anything and everything that Lithic Press publishes. Their editors have a very keen eye and while I’m honored to be among them, I can’t walk into their shop without marveling and purchasing several copies. Specifically, do not miss Sam Roxas-Chua, Neeli Cherkovski, Kierstin Bridger, Jennifer Rane Hancock, and one of my very favorites Adam Houle. Danny Rosen knows what he likes and selects incredible work and publishes beautiful books. Shout out to his designer, who is also a fine poet and musician, Kyle Harvey.

Former People is an international online literary and art journal publishing continuously throughout the year. They are open for submissions of poetry, flash fiction, non-fiction, interviews, reviews, multimedia, and artwork.
