Six Questions with Poetry Contest Judge Karen Solie

I can never ¬†enter a contest if I already know the judge…it feels like I’m crank-calling a classmate’s parents…A potential ethical conflict, a potentially call-outable event. Anyway Karen Solie, who I worked with at The Banff Centre, was a judge for this contest and had some kind words both for me and for some people I really, really like.Screen Shot 2015-06-13 at 10.55.00 PM
