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 appear at Woodland Pattern.

 

Our discussion on Thursday, September 10 will focus on the work of poet Joan Kane, author of The Cormorant Hunter’s Wife and Hyperboreal. Kane graduated from Harvard College, where she was a Harvard National Scholar, and Columbia University’s School of the Arts, where she was the recipient of a graduate Writing Fellowship. Inupiaq with family from King Island and Mary’s Igloo, she raises her children in Anchorage, Alaska, and is on the faculty of the low-residency MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico. New work will appear in POETRY Magazine and The Best American Poetry 2015.

 

On Saturday, September 26 at Woodland Pattern, Joan Kane will conduct a workshop from 2pm to 5 pm and give a reading at 7 pm.

 

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Amanda [Ngoho] Reavey:
