Hometown Paper Features Marisa Crawford

The release date of Switchback's sixth book, Marisa Crawford's The Haunted House is right around the corner on April 1, which means we're *officially* excited!

In the meantime, please enjoy this feature in Connecticut's Monroe Courier, which profiles Crawford and discusses the reflection on adolescence, particularly the girl-world of adolescence, presented in her poetry. Crawford is a Monroe native.

The Haunted House is the winner of last year's Gatewood Prize, Switchback's annual contest for emerging women poets. Her manuscript was selected by contest judge Denise Duhamel. For details about this year's contest, judged by Cathy Park Hong, click here.
