Karla Huston, Appleton, Wisconsin, is the author of a full collection of poems, A Theory of Lipstick, which was released from Main Street Rag Publications in April 2013.  She has also published six chapbooks of poems; a seventh is forthcoming from dancing girl press chapbook series in 2013.  Huston’s poems, reviews and interviews have appeared widely, including in the 2012 Pushcart Best of the Small Presses anthology.

Topic: WRITING POETRY REVIEWS. One of the most important and necessary tools a poet has at his or her disposal is reviewing the poetry of others.  It’s true there are more poets than reviewers, and it is also true that reading and crafting a review can be a thankless job; yet there are tremendous rewards for both the poet and the reviewer alike.

Bring 17 or more copies (2 page limit) of a poem you want critiqued.*$5 – $10 donation appreciated.

This project is partially supported by grants from:   Poets & Writers, the Illinois Arts Council

and The MacArthur Fund for Arts and Culture at the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
