featuring Seattle-based writer/poet/artist Nicole McCarthy. Nicole is from the pacific northwest. She earned her MFA in Creative Writing & Poetics from the University of Washington Bothell. Her work has been performed and encountered through installation pieces throughout Seattle & Tacoma.
Put down the holiday cookies and pick up your headphones, friends, because we snagged an exclusive podcast interview with experimental artist Nicole McCarthy! In this episode, Nicole chats about her artistic journey, her biggest influences, and how we can use art to rid ourselves of shame. She also explains how she became a library gangster. Literary journals we chat about in the podcast include: The Shallow Ends, Glass Poetry Press and Hugo House. Writers we shamelessly name drop include: C.A. Conrad, JM Miller and Harryette Mullen.
Did we mention Prickly Pear Podcast has a fabulous sponsor? That’s right, we’re working with Oakes & Alder day spa and apothecary to record our podcast in their lovely space in North End, Tacoma! We’re big fans of Oakes and Alder’s spa services, natural skincare products and bulk herbs. Learn more about the spa on Facebook or Instagram!
