Ep. 8 Raegen Pietrucha | Great poetry, crafting a Gorgon, and tackling art/life balance.

Hi friends,

Today I’m so excited to be arts calling Raegen Pietrucha!

Raegen Pietrucha is a professional and creative writer, editor, consultant, and educator with two degrees in English and more than 20 years of combined experience. Her chapbook, An Animal I Can’t Name, won the 2015 Two of Cups Press competition; her debut poetry collection, Head of a Gorgon, is forthcoming with Vegetarian Alcoholic Press in 2022; and she has a memoir in progress. She received her MFA from Bowling Green State University, where she was an assistant editor for Mid-American Review. Her creative work has been published in Cimarron Review, Puerto del Sol, and other journals.

Our conversation went so quickly! Yet I learned so much from Raegen that I hope you go check out her website asap:
