Episode #99: Camille Guthrie, author of ARTICULATED LAIR, on Tuesday, July 30th at 11 am PST/2 pm EST

Join Rachelle as she talks with  Camille Guthrie, author of ARTICULATED LAIR, on Tuesday, July 30th at 11 am PST/2 pm EST.

Camille Guthrie
Born in Seattle and raised in Pittsburgh, poet Camille Guthrie earned a BA at Vassar College and an MFA at Brown University. She is the author of the poetry collections The Master Thief(2000) and In Captivity(2006). Her experimental long poems and inter-textual poetic sequences often engage with ongoing literary conversations. In an interview with Chicago Review, Guthrie stated, “Writing about another text or object and in poetic form often serves as a self-inflicted restraint in my work; forms are surely a kind of capture, scrupulous and absorbing rituals. Then it’s satisfying to wreck them somehow, to make them imperfect.” Guthrie has taught at New York University and Bennington College. She lives in Brooklyn.
