A little talk over cannoli….


This winter, I had the privilege of being interviewed for Cirque Journal by friend, publisher, and poet-delightful human, Katharine Salzmann. Between bites of Italian pastry and strong cappuccinos, she riffed questions and teased answers, and the result is a lovely, spontaneous interview about my recent full length collection, Echolocation, about knowing a place, knowing the body, and climate change, among other stray thoughts. 

It can be found here, at Cirque Journal – since they are a small, independent journal publishing amazing poets, writers, reviews, art and interviews, please consider purchasing a copy. Every bit of support helps!

Thank you, Katharine, Sandy, and Bella Italian Bakery, in Lents, Portland. xo

“Take Flight” by Sarah Klein

“If we have forgotten that poetry is a call sent out into the world to rediscover and name our hearts, minds, and bodies, Kristin Berger’s beautiful new book of poems reminds us of poetry’s good and necessary work.” 

~ Annie Lighthart, author of Lantern and Iron String
