Catherine Carter’s collections of poetry with LSU Press include The Memory of Gills (2006) The Swamp Monster at Home (2012), and Larvae of the Nearest Stars (2019); she has one chapbook with Jacar Press, Marks of the Witch. Her poetry has won the North Carolina Literary Review’s James Applewhite Prize, the North Carolina Literary and Historical Society’s Roanoke-Chowan Award, Jacar Press’ chapbook contest; it has also appeared in Orion, Poetry, Ecotone, RHINO, North American Review, Southern Humanities Review, Poetry South, Tar River Poetry, and Ploughshares, among others. Raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, she is now professor of English at Western Carolina University. On a good day, she can roll a whitewater kayak and re-queen a beehive; on less good days, she collects stings, rock-rash, and multiple contusions. Catherine also “enjoys cooking, especially vegetable and beans, because it’s probably the original human art and it produces something everyone can enjoy; and I’d probably enjoy some kind of crafting if I weren’t a complete clutz with my hands; and I get Wordle most of the time but not always.”
