Abby E. Murray on Rattlecast

February 27, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:15 pm EST

Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Abby E. Murray has moved around the country and taught writing in Colorado, Georgia, Alaska, New York, and Washington, where she served as the 2019-2021 Poet Laureate for the city of Tacoma. Her first book, Hail and Farewell, won the 2019 Perugia Press Poetry Prize and was a finalist for the Washington State Book Award. Previous chapbooks include How to Be Married after Iraq (Finishing Line Press, 2018), Quick Draw: Poems from a Soldier’s Wife (Finishing Line Press, 2012) and Me and Coyote (Lost Horse Books, 2010).
As always, live open lines will be included for responses to a weekly prompt or any other poems folks would like to share. A Zoom link will be provided in the chat window during the show before that segment begins. For links to all the past episodes, visit:
This Week’s Prompt: Write a poem around a simile comparing an emotion to a grammatical term, such as “Love as an Intransitive Verb” or “Anger as a Semicolon.” The Rattlecast livestreams on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, then becomes an audio podcast. Find it on iTunes, Spotify, or anywhere else you get your podcasts.
