Tucson Success Stories: Drew Krewer

Drew Krewer’s work has appeared in Trickhouse, Poor Claudia, Pequod, and Quick Fiction, among others. Ars Warholica, a chapbook, was recently published by Spork Press.

Natasha Stagg: What are you up to lately?

Drew Krewer: I’m about ready to start a new project after finishing the one that came from my MFA manuscript. It makes me really, really nervous. And I’m currently working toward an MA in Library and Information Resources here at the U of A. I’m really excited to be working with information and art. I’ve also been working on my blog, mars poetica.

NS: Are you planning on staying in Tucson?

DK: I have no idea how long I plan to stay because I really like the landscape, people, and writing community here.

NS: What are you reading?

DK: Caryl Churchill’s play Cloud Nine, The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, and Brecht’s Caucasian Chalk Circle. But most recently, I’ve gone on a foreign film binge.

NS: Suggest something to do in Tucson.

DK: Go to Danny’s Baboquivari… the place is amazing and is in need of artsy people to shake things up a little. They have a fire pit in the winter and an amazing non-internet jukebox. Umm… Best Western Karaoke is the greatest. Find friends with swimming pools and cars.

NS: Suggest something to read.

DK: One Flea Spare, a really short play by Naomi Wallace. It’s a beautifully written period play about class issues and the plague. I named my cat after the central character. That tells you how much I love it.
