National Poetry Month Celebration
Carlin Pierce, poet, author, and blogger, has almost made it through her senior year of high school. She is planning on attending college in the fall of this year, with hopes to continue writing, branching out from poetry. She has published two collections of poetry, Stone like Wind, and Pear Trees and Starlings, and is currently working on a third. Her blog about sustainable agriculture, Maslow’s Ambrosia, and her projects in the fiction world have kept her extremely busy this past year. She is always looking for new experiences, new ideas, and new authors, and is hoping to collaborate this year on some new pieces!
What exciting things have you accomplished in 2013?
Well, making it through first semester of senior year in high school alive and unscathed was quite the accomplishment, and I published my second collection of poetry: Pear Trees and Starlings. I finished an early reader manuscript, and I finished my Young Adult manuscript!
What can we look forward to in the future from you?
Hopefully I will be going to college this fall, finding another circle of poets and artists, and writing in every spare moment! I'm looking forward to the new experiences that will give me fuel for my pen! I hope to have the first installment of my children's series out this year, as well as my Young Adult Gaslight Fantasy. I am also working on a third collection of poetry that I hope to publish soon!
