Art in the Afternoon | Poetry Month
April 24 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
In recognition of National Poetry Month, Art in the Afternoon in April will feature two local poets, Cory Hutchinson-Reuss and Kathleen Maris Paltrineri, reading some of their works and discussing their ideas about poetry and how those ideas shape their writing.
Cory Hutchinson-Reuss grew up in Arkansas and holds a PhD in English from the University of Iowa. Her poems have appeared in journals such as American Literary Review, Drunken Boat, Witness, wildness, and The Missouri Review’s Poem of the Week Feature. She has been a Best New Poets nominee and the recipient of the Lynda Hull Memorial Prize for Poetry from Crazyhorse. She lives in Iowa City and serves as a Poetry Reader for The Adroit Journal. She describes her poetry as “a mode of inquiry, a flexible structure for holding (not necessarily resolving) unknowing, tension, and wonder. To that end, my poems are often more invested in associations and possibilities than narrative clarity…My goal is for the poem to become a threshold space that opens me and the reader to the grief and astonishment of being human.”
Hannah Bonner’s poems have appeared, or are forthcoming, in Bear Review, Pigeon Pages, Rattle, The Pinch Journal, The Vassar Review, Tinderbox Poetry Journal, TriQuarterly, and Two Peach. She has an MA in Film Studies and is pursuing a creative nonfiction MFA at The University of Iowa. She currently serves as the poetry editor at Brink
