Upcoming Readings: 5/15, 5/17, 6/25

As graduation approaches rapidly (my thesis is due tomorrow! classes end on Thursday!), I've been thinking a lot about what to do with the extra free time I'll gain.  I have many plans, mostly involving submissions and trying to find more adjunct work, but I'd also like to attend more readings, and do more of my own readings.  Luckily, the next two months have already gotten me started on the right foot.  I'll be involved in three readings over the next few weeks, and if you're interested, please do stop by and say hello!

Goldwater Hospital Workshop Reading - May 15, 2013 - 4pm at Jurow Hall
The annual showcase of a creative writing workshop led by graduate student fellows for residents of Goldwater Hospital, a public facility for the severely physically challenged.  I've been honored to be a part of this program for the past year, and I'll be introducing the poet with whom I've worked.

NYU Thesis Reading - May 17, 2013 - 5pm at Lillian Vernon Writers House
An annual celebration of the graduating MFA candidates at New York University with short readings by each student from their thesis.

Graduate Poets Series - June 25, 2013 - 6pm at Cornelia Street Cafe
On the fourth Tuesday of every month, new hosts Alissa Fleck and Peter Longofono showcase a group of promising poets selected from New York City MFA programs. Each month's readers are carefully chosen to strike a balance between experimental and traditional form; exploratory and interior character; and declarative and intuitive voice. The series functions as a dialogue between programs, a welcoming venue for developing talent, and a means for new alumni to establish their connections and craft beyond the MFA. Come hear NYC's next poetic generation in a uniquely generative peer environment!
