Take a break, get inspired, and learn a bit more about Christopher Iacono. Here is our twist on an interview.
- A quote that inspires you:
“The pleasures of writing correspond exactly to the pleasures of reading, the bliss, the felicity of a phrase is shared by writer and reader: by the satisfied writer and the grateful reader, or—which is the same thing—by the artist grateful to the unknown force in his mind that has suggested a combination of images and by the artistic reader whom this combination satisfies.” — Vladimir Nabokov
- Your writing process described as a song:
- You’re a writer so tell us with your words why you write. But please don’t bore us:
I write because if I didn’t, I’d be playing guitar right now, and your ears wouldn’t like that so much.
- What is a recent story or poem you’ve had published elsewhere that we should read?
I would like you to check out my poem “The Price Tower,” which was published in the latest issue of WOLVES.
Christopher Iacono lives with his wife and son in Massachusetts. He has been published in Zetetic: A Record of Unusual Inquiry, Dirty Chai, Pidgeonholes, among others. You can learn more about him at cuckoobirds.org or find him on Twitter (@ciacono1973) or Instagram (@ciacono761).
See you next week with another not-so-typical interview.
