Facilitated by Jessi Carnes & Amanda [Ngoho] Reavey, this is a reading & discussion series introducing the work & writing practices of writers in the contemporary literature & arts scene. The series will provide participants an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the work of our visiting writers before those writers arrive at Woodland Pattern.
Our discussion on Tuesday, November 10 will focus on the work of poet Brenda Coultas, author of The Tatters, a collection of poetry, recently published by Wesleyan University Press, and she is a contributing fiction editor at Black and Grey. Her other books included The Marvelous Bones of Time (2008) and A Handmade Museum (2003) from Coffee House Press. She has received a New York Foundation for the Arts fellowship (NYFA) and a Lower Manhattan Cultural Council residency (LMCC). Her poetry can be found in The Brooklyn Rail, Witness and the Denver Quarterly. This past year she was a mentor in the Emerge-Surface-Be program sponsored by The Poetry Project and The Jerome Foundation.
