The Wishbone Collective (Winooski, VT) is happy to announce a new monthly reading series in collaboration with the Ruth Stone Foundation. Join us for our second reading on Sunday, April 14th. Doors at 6:00, reading at 6:30. This month will feature poets Seth Wade, CA Conrad, and Rita Banerjee.
CA Conrad is a 2019 Creative Capital Fellow, and the author of nine books of poetry and essays. While Standing in Line for Death (Wave Books), received the 2018 Lambda Award. A recipient of a Pew Fellowship in the Arts, they also received The Believer Magazine Book Award and The Gil Ott Book Award. Their work has been translated into Spanish, Greek, Polish, Norwegian, Portuguese, Danish and German. They teach regularly at Columbia University in NYC, and Sandberg Art Institute in Amsterdam.
Rita Banerjee is the Director of the MFA in Writing & Publishing program at the Vermont College of Fine Arts. As a writer, she is the co-editor of CREDO: An Anthology of Manifestos and Sourcebook for Creative Writing (C&R Press, May 2018), and the author of the poetry collection Echo in Four Beats (Finishing Line Press, March 2018).
The Ruth Stone Foundation (RSF) is a non-profit organization that not only looks to preserve and heighten Ruth Stone’s legacy, but also to provide poets and artists with time, space, and opportunities to create new work and share it with a wider audience.
The RSF Reading Series is a free event featuring multiple poets, both emerging and established. As often as possible RSF will pair local authors with visiting writers and invite a student of the RSF Poetry Workshop to participate. Hosted by poets Bianca Stone and Ben Pease, these readings will offer a chance for out of state writers to engage with the local community, highlight exciting local voices, and give emerging writers a chance to share their work publicly.
