So & So Poetry Reading #102
The event will feature readings by three local poets and writers: Richard Lucyshyn, Hassan Melehy and Allison Titus.
Our exhibitions will be open so come on out to enjoy some art for your eyes and your ears.
Admission is free. Please RSVP via Facebook.
Richard Lucyshyn is a poet and visual artist living in Richmond, VA with his wife, children, and animals. Geoffrey Tungsten’s Grievesome River, a chapbook of poems and illustrations, was published by Sybil Press in 2016. Some of his poems have appeared in Sprung Formal, Incessant Pipe, The Hollins Critic, and Glitterpony with newer work forthcoming in Gramma Daily. He teaches poetry and creative writing at The College of William and Mary.
Hassan Melehy has lived all over the United States and written poems on the way. Some of them have appeared in The Hat, nthposition, Borderlands, Redheaded Stepchild, and The New Formalist, among other journals. His verse is eclectic but probably owes more to experimental practices, from the sixteenth century to the present, than anything. A Modest Apocalypse (Eyewear, 2017) is his first collection. He’s also written three books of literary criticism, most recently Kerouac: Language, Poetics, and Territory (Bloomsbury, 2016). He teaches French and Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill, USA.
Allison Titus is the author of two books of poetry, The sum of every lost ship and The True Book of Animal Homes, and a novel, The Arsonist’s Song Has Nothing to Do With Fire. Recent poems have appeared in A Public Space and Tin House, and she is a recipient of an NEA fellowship in poetry. She currently teaches in the low-res MFA program at New England College.
