Back to Poetry: An Interview with BR Chapbook Competition Winner Sandra Kolankiewicz

Sandra Kolankiewicz, author of the Black River Chapbook Competition-winning Turning Inside Out, was interviewed by The Marietta Times this week. In it, she talks about returning to poetry after a fifteen year affair with fiction, revisiting poems that she’d written almost two decades ago, and the experience of winning awards for her poems after such a long hiatus in her career as a poet. She also discusses the benefits of publishing with a small press and offers advice to other writers. You can read the whole interview online by following this link.

Turning Inside Out, $9.00, is available from the Black Lawrence Press website.
