Poet Martha Collins Reads Tonight

Posted by bgsuenglish on March 20, 2008

Tonight at Prout chapel, poet Martha Collins will be reading from her work as part of the regular Thursday night MFA/BFA Creative Writing reading series. The reading begins at 7:00 pm.

Collins is the author of Blue Front, a book-length poem based on a lynching her father witnessed when he was five years old. Her chapbook Sheer (Barnwood, 2008) is her most recent publication. She has also published four collections of poems, two books of co-translations from the Vietnamese, an earlier chapbook of poems, and is currently editor-at-large for FIELD magazine and one of the editors of the Oberlin College Press.

You can listen to Collins read an excerpt from Sheer, “From The Sky,” for NPR’s Weekend Edition here.
