Bird Eating Bird: Kristin Naca
Two weeks ago, the National Poetry Series announced that a manuscript by San Antonio-based poet and Macondo Workshop alum Kristin Naca would be one of five books the organization publishes annually through its Open Competition series. Selected by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa, Bird Eating Bird will appear in fall ’09 under the HarperCollins imprint. Naca also was awarded the inaugural mtvU prize, granting her the opportunity to interview Komunyakaa on MTV.
