Join us for a night of poetry with three special guests: Will Schutt, Lindsay Bernal, and GennaRose Nethercott.

GennaRose Nethercott’s book The Lumberjack’s Dove (Ecco/HarperCollins) was selected by Louise Glück as a winner of the 2017 National Poetry Series. Her other recent projects include A Ghost of Water (an ekphrastic collaboration with printmaker Susan Osgood) and the narrative song collection Modern Ballads. She has been awarded residencies at The Vermont Studio Center, Art Farm Nebraska, Shakespeare & Company bookstore, and elsewhere, and is the recipient of a 2018 Mass Cultural Council Artist Fellowship. She tours nationally and internationally, composing poems-to-order for strangers on an antique typewriter, and is the founder of The Traveling Poetry Emporium, an itinerant team of poets-for-hire. Raised in Vermont, she has lived in many cities across America and Europe, but is always drawn back to the forest.

Lindsay Bernal’s poetry collection, What It Doesn’t Have to Do With, published by the University of Georgia Press, was selected by Paul Guest as a winner of the 2017 National Poetry Series competition. Her poems have appeared in Blackbird, Conjunctions Online, Gulf Coast, OVERSOUND, Tikkun, and other journals. Bernal coordinates the Creative Writing Program and the Writers Here & Now reading series at the University of Maryland.

Will Schutt is the author of Westerly, a collection of poems selected by Carl Phillips for the Yale Younger Poets Prize. He is also the translator of My Life, I Lapped It Up: Selected Poems of Edoardo Sanguineti (Oberlin College Press, 2018) and Fabio Genovesi's novel The Breaking of a Wave (Europa Editions, 2017), among other works of literature from the Italian. The recipient of several awards and fellowships, including a National Endowment for the Arts Literature Translation Fellowship, the Amy Lowell Poetry Travelling Scholarship and the Reginald S. Tickner Fellowship, he currently lives with his wife in Baltimore, where he works as an independent writing tutor, literary consultant, and translator.
