David Eye event

 
Featuring Lauren Clark, David Eye, and Jerome Murphy. It’s a reading, but we’re queering it up: Audience members choose the themes and the poets respond. Will you draw “Femme Realness”? Or “Love and Other Body Fluids”? Or “My Dad’s an Asshole?” Et cetera.

 
 
Lauren Clark’s first collection of poems, Music for a Wedding, was selected by Vijay Seshadri for the 2016 AWP Donald Hall Prize in Poetry. It will be published by the University of Pittsburgh Press in 2017. They work as Program & Development Coordinator at Poets House in New York City and collaborate with Etc. Gallery in Chicago.
 
 

David Eye is the author of Seed (The Word Works, 2017), chosen by Eduardo C. Corral. He will attend the 2017 Sewanee Writers’ Conference as a Walter E. Dakin Fellow. He was awarded a scholarship to Sewanee in 2014 and was a finalist for the 2015-16 Tennessee Williams Poetry Contest, selected by Yusef Komunyakaa. David earned an MFA from Syracuse University in 2008.

 
 
Jerome Murphy received an MFA in 2011 from the Creative Writing Program at New York University, where he currently serves as Undergraduate Programs Manager. His critical writing has been featured in LA Review of Books, The Brooklyn Rail, Lambda Literary, and American Poets. His poetry has appeared in The Awl and in the Emotive Fruition poetry performance series curated by Thomas Dooley, recorded for NPR’s Radiolab, and is also forthcoming in Narrative Magazine.
