The 2017-2019 Creative Writing Program Fellows give reading on Tuesday, February 27 at 6:30 p.m. in the Jones Room of the Woodruff Library. Michael Marberry is the current fellow in poetry and joins fiction fellow Cassie Gonzales for this free reading.

Marberry’s poetry has appeared in the journals New Republic, Sycamore Review, West Branch, Crab Orchard Review, and elsewhere. A Pushcart Prize recipient, his work has been anthologized in Best of the Net, The Southern Poetry Anthology, and New Poetry of the Midwest. He has earned degrees from The Ohio State University, the University of Alabama, and Lipscomb University. Recently, he completed his PhD at Western Michigan University, where his research interests included cinepoetics, comics, and horror literature.

Gonzales has a master degree in Creative Writing from the University of Oxford and her writing has been published by or is forthcoming from the Kenyon Review, Tin House Open Bar, The Letters Page, Granta online, and The Paris Review online, among others. Her drama has been staged by The University of Iowa, shortlisted by the BBC, and performed on three continents.

A book signing and reception will follow the reading.
