(Register to attend in person, below.)




Lewis Freedman is a poet who writes poems and also books of poems. A very recent (perhaps just this morning) and possibly hopeless interest in the poetics of vagueness and non-particularity leads him in writing this bio. What else does one say? The world, oof.

Gabriel Kruis is a poet, educator and arts administrator originally from New Mexico. He is a cofounder of Wendy’s Subway and the author of Acid Virga (Archway Editions, 2020) and editor and contributor for Return to the Field (Wendy's Subway, 2021). His work has been published within A Perfect Vacuum, the PEN America Poetry Series, OmniVerse, the Brooklyn Rail, the Atlas Review, Frontier Poetry, among others.

Jennifer Nelson is the author of the poetry books Harm Eden and Aim at the Centaur Stealing Your Wife (Ugly Duckling Presse) and of Civilization Makes Me Lonely (Ahsahta). She teaches art history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is also the author of Disharmony of the Spheres: The Europe of Holbein's Ambassadors (Penn State University Press) and of the forthcoming Lucas Cranach: Artist of the Reformation (Reaktion Press).
