The Sweet Action Poetry Collective invites Laura Eve Engel and Iris Tillman to read from their new books. There will also be an open mic. Laura Eve Engel is the recipient of fellowships from Provincetown Fine Arts Works Center, the Wisconsin Institute for Creative Writing, and the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation. Her work has appeared in The Awl, Best American Poetry, Boston Review, Crazyhorse, Colorado Review, PEN America, Tin House , and elsewhere. She is in a band called The Old Year. THINGS THAT GO is her first book. Publishers Weekly calls it a "nimble, philosophical debut." Iris Tillman Hill grew up in Brooklyn, New York, and published poems, many years ago, in The Grecourt Review when she was an undergraduate at Smith College. After working as editor-in-chief at university presses in Texas, Georgia, and North Carolina, she became the founding director of Duke's Center for Documentary Studies (1989-1998). In recent years she returned to writing poetry. Her poems have appeared in Tar River Poetry; The Comstock Review; Women's Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal; and Love (Jacar Press); Generations: A Journal of Ideas and Images; drafthorse: a lit journal of work and no work (online); the 2012 Nazim Hikmet Poetry Festival's Chapbook; and others.
