Morgan Parker will be reading at Free Water 8 on Friday, August 14th, at KGB, at 7 p.m. along with Tommy Pico, Lynn Melnick, and Angel Nafis.
What is the best poetry advice you’ve received?
Morgan Parker: Write drunk, edit sober.
What are you currently working on?
Parker: A YA novel about my experience growing up in the suburbs, my second poetry collection, and a trillion other things.
In a previous interview with EKR, Britt said “everything is sound.” So if everything is sound, how would you describe yours? Or, disagree.
Parker: I guess sort of like a playlist of Sun Ra and Sonic Youth? Some weeping in the background?
What is the last book you read?
Parker: Fred Moten’s “The Feel Trio,” and I’m finishing “A Little Life.”
What’s your favorite drink (besides FREE WATER)?
Parker: Wine. Any wine and all the wines.
