Take a break, get inspired, and learn a bit more about Carl Boon. Here is our twist on an interview.
- A quote that inspires you:
“It is amazing how complete is the delusion that beauty is goodness.” —Tolstoy
- 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 to examine the notion I hold that the best poem suggests its own futility, that the world will eventually devour and dismiss every word I put down. These are true, but mostly I write because there is always some simmering story, some pain, some truth in the mundane.
- What is a recent story or poem you’ve had published elsewhere that we should read?
The editors at Two Peach liked this one, called “Post-Accident“
A native Ohioan, Carl Boon lives and works in Izmir, Turkey. His poems appear in dozens of magazines, most recently Two Peach, Jet Fuel Review, Blast Furnace, and Poetry Quarterly.
See you next week with another not-so-typical interview.
