MFA Greensboro Alum Sarah Lindsay Interviewed on Guernica

Five Questions for Sarah Lindsay

June 4, 2010

Guernica’s poetry editor Erica Wright catches up with the featured poet of our June 1 issue.

Guerncia: When did you begin including science in your work?

Sarah Lindsay: I’m not sure—but I do remember an occasion in grad school when a professor read my sheaf of emotional stuff, and awkwardly suggested that I try writing about “something else.” I had a book of astronomy photos checked out from the library, as it happened, so I did a galactic collision poem. It was about emotional stuff anyway, but an improvement.
