Postponed until it’s prudent to gather again. For one virtual source of poetry, we recommend the Poetry Unbound podcast—brief, beautiful poems read and unpacked by the Irish poet and peace-organizer Pádraig Ó Tuama.
We’re pleased to welcome two Michigan writers to our living room for the March edition of our poetry series. Join us on March 27 to hear from Holland poet and essayist Susanna Childress and New Buffalo poet Marci Rae Johnson.
We’ll gather in Jon & Hannah’s living room at 7:30 p.m. for drinks, snacks, and poetry. Please RSVP using the form at the bottom of this post, and we will get you location information and directions.
Susanna Childress lives in Holland, Michigan. After publishing two collections of poetry, Jagged with Love and Entering the House of Awe, she is at work on a book of essays titled “Extremely Yours,” under contract with Awst Press. Recent work can be found or forthcoming in The Rumpus, Fourteen Hills, Iron Horse Literary Press, Relief, Rhino, and Oakland Review.
Marci Rae Johnson is a freelance writer and editor, and the poetry editor for The Cresset and for WordFarm press. Her poems appear or are forthcoming in Image, The Christian Century, Main Street Rag, The Collagist, Rhino, Quiddity, Hobart, Redivider, Redactions, The Valparaiso Poetry Review, The Louisville Review, and 32 Poems, among others. Her most recent book, Basic Disaster Supplies Kit, was published by Steel Toe Books in 2016.
