Visual Poetry

Video by Carolyn Guinzio

Though Carolyn Guinzio is primarily a poet, she works across mediums, using light, sound, text and image in an effort to reach spaces that are inaccessible through text alone.

Her newest collection is A Vertigo Book (The Word Works, 2021), winner of The Tenth Gate Prize and finalist for the Foreword Indies Award in Poetry. Her work has appeared in The Nation, Poetry, The New Yorker, and many other journals. Her poem/films have been included in numerous juried festivals including the Poetry Film and Video Symposium, the Nature and Culture Festival in Copenhagen, the Newlyn Festival and the Cadence Poetry Film Festival, where Ozark Crows won the jury award. Among her other previous books are Spoke & Dark (Red Hen, 2012), winner of the To The Lighthouse/A Room Of Her Own Prize, and Ozark Crows (Spuyten Duyvil, 2018), a collection of visual poems.
