Poetry. Everything is future waste and nothing disappears in FILL: A COLLECTION, a poetic collaboration between Erika Howsare and Kate Schapira. The two writers sent their words on waste, profligacy, persistence, reclamation and degradation back and forth with full license to alter and no permission to throw any word away. The result is a double-minded meditation on and breakdown of the divisions between valuable and valueless, here and gone.
Kate Schapira is the author of five full-length books of poetry, most recently HANDBOOK FOR HANDS THAT ALTER AS WE HOLD THEM OUT (Horse Less Press, 2016), and eleven chapbooks. She lives in Providence, RI, where she writes, teaches, co-runs the Publicly Complex Reading Series, and periodically offers Climate Anxiety Counseling.Erika Howsare is the author of several previous chapbooks and has served as an editor at Horse Less Press since 2005. She lives in rural Virginia, where she mothers full-time and works as a journalist.Author City: PROVIDENCE, RI USA
