Kirsten Imani Kasai

Pretty Owl Poetry is pleased to announce another installment of our online reading series. We hung out with Kirsten Imani Kasai whose poetry was featured in Issue 3 along with her photography that was the cover art for this issue. Kirsten discusses reoccurring motifs in her writing and her writing process. She also talks about her photography and a trip to Romania where she photographed abandoned villas.

Check out the Google Hangout on Air for more details.

Kirsten is the author of three novels: ‘Ice Song’ and ‘Tattoo,’ about the adventures of a gender-swapping single mother and the half-human inhabitants of the frozen Sigue; ‘Private Pleasures,’ concerning desire and the sex industry; and a short fiction/poetry collection ‘Rhapsody in Snakeskin: Tales of Erotica and Horror.’ She’s also the editor and co-founder of Body Parts Magazine and holds an MFA from Antioch University. She lives in California with her children and her girlfriend. Connect with her online via, or
