Regina is a 3rd-year poet in the MFA program at UNCW. We love her and we knew you would too, so we asked her a few questions so y’all could get to know her:
Favorite author, book, journal? What do you like? “Although I am a poet by trade, I find Paul Auster and Milan Kundera very inspiring. I also cannot wait to order the newest from Zadie Smith and Junot Diaz. As for poetry, I try to read the newest chapbooks I can find— I’m interested in exploring the current moment in poetry, however experimental or traditional, and always considering if a new voice would be a good fit for Ecotone. Also, let’s face it, I read an embarrassing amount of celebrity gossip”
Hit us with a place-based factoid/story about yourself: “I never thought I would live within walking distance of a Hooters. Sigh.”
Your favorite thing Ecotone ever published? “Mary Reufle’s three poems in the Remembrance issue were dynamite. Also, I really enjoyed Peter LaSalle’s short story ‘Tell Me About Nerval’ in the Happiness issue.”
Something random? “I sometimes have fantasies about breaking into other people’s houses and cleaning them.”
And that, dear readers, is Regina in 4 questions and a picture!
