American expat Carrie Etter has published poems in Jacket, The Liberal, Oasis, Poetry Review, Shearsman, and TLS. On her chapbook Subterfuge for the Unrequitable (Potes & Poets, 1998), Ron Silliman remarked, “To ‘register the tongue’s torque,’ Carrie Etter’s poems show great skill and a willingness to take risks, both rare things in a ‘first book.’ This writing is simultaneously ‘out there’ and always also immediately present (in the most literal sense of ‘with it’), an experience that is by turns centering and dizzying. It’s quite a ride.”
Poetry readings are organised in collaboration with Barry Schwabsky
