Aggressive Interview #2: Carrie Etter, Poet, Lecturer

Gists and Piths: "I’d like to know why you bothered with Yet despite the two real books you have lined up with Seren and Shearsman. Aren’t pamphlets just an ugly way of saying, “This poetry isn’t worth backing with real money and you’re probably wasting your time reading it”?:
Carrie Etter: Ugly? Have you seen Yet?

Seriously, I think that a pamphlet can prove useful in a number of respects. Emerging poets can learn about editing and sequencing before they approach a publisher with a book-length manuscript, and using the pamphlet as a stepping stone also means such poets will take more time to develop their first books. For poets in between books, it may allow them to publish an independent sequence or work-in-progress, generating interest in the new work and potentially the next book.
