Cristin Interviewed in Monkeybicycle
The indie lit journal Monkeybicyle interviewed Cristin about her second collection of poetry, Hot Teen Slut, on its popularblog. Indie lit’s own (and Mud Luscious founder) J.A. Tyler asked the questions, which covered topics like love vs. porn, poetry vs. fiction and life after smut-writing. He also wrote of the book that “porn has never been so poetically charged, never rendered with such humor and careful control, making Hot Teen Slut not only a fantastic book but a unique one in every sense of the word.” To read the full interview, please click here.
Cristin Interviewed in Stated Magazine
Professor, author & poetic raconteur Daniel Nester makes his debut as contributing editor of Stated Magazine with an interview with Cristin. The interview focuses on Cristin’s recently re-issued early work (“We would have to go to the world of records, where recording artist reissues and boxed sets are more common, with demos, alternate takes, non-album B-sides. I know I’m fetishizing these books as objects, but I’m a collector of sorts. That’s what I do.”), but spirals delightfully out of control with topics such as being an double agent in both performance & academics, why slammers love Billy Collins and how the concept of “Meet Internet Only Friends with Awkward Hugs” bridges the words of stage and page.
