A Little About Courtney:
What medium do you usually create in and why?
Poetry is my preferred medium though I’ve dabbled a little bit in CNF. But I consider myself a poet first and foremost.
What are you currently working on? OR Tell us about your last project and what you love about it!
My first full length collection of poetry, Beautiful & Full of Monsters, was published in early March by Vegetarian Alcoholic Press so I’ve been focused on that…though with the coronavirus pandemic it’s been really hard – all my events and readings have been cancelled. My second full length collection is with a few publishers for consideration, hoping to hear back from them soon!
What kinds of things do you find yourself returning to routinely as influences in your work?
My life, haha. Honestly, I get most of my inspiration from things that happen to me or around me, stuff going on in the world today or other poems I read. I find inspiration everywhere.
