Carrie stopped by a few weeks ago where we got to catch up with her plans to do a reading series, now that she is no longer hosting one at Emory University.
Currently, she is working on an upcoming collection titled Collection / Agency. She reads an eleven-minute poem, "The Blood Barn", that is not to be missed. You can feel the movement of body and passion in her words while she walks us through this stellar piece.
We hope you enjoy the episode.
