The Memory of Gills

Welcome to Catherine Carter’s poetry website! That pretty pink coi posterior to the left is the cover of her first book of poetry, The Memory of Gills (LSU, 2006), winner of the North Carolina Literary and Historical Association’s 2007 Roanoke-Chowan award).  That book is still available through  LSU Press, through your local independent bookstore (Catherine’s a fan of City Lights and Malaprop’s), and (as a last resort) through the big online bookstores.

The Swamp Monster at Home, poems by Catherine Carter

The bright green thing to the left with the staring eyeball (very Emersonian) is the cover of her new book, The Swamp Monster at Home (LSU Press, February 2012.)
