Hot L Featuring Aaron Belz and Leslie Harrison

The Ivy Bookshop

The HOT L Poets Series presents Aaron Belz & Leslie Harrison with open mic for poetry! The HOT L, a monthly reading on Second Sundays, is sponsored by Smartish Pace magazine and the Baltimore Poets Theater.


Aaron Belz’s poetry has been published in American journals such as Fence and Boston Review, Eleven Eleven and Zócalo Public Square, and internationally in publications such as Van Gogh’s Ear, Jacket, and Tears in the Fence. He has given live readings in numerous venues ranging from literary salons and warm, inviting bookstores to university classrooms, improv workshops and literary festivals and comedy festivals. He’s released three full-length books of poems and two chapbooks. He lives in Hillsborough, North Carolina.


Leslie Harrison was born in Germany and raised in New Hampshire. She earned graduate degrees from Johns Hopkins University and the University of California, Irvine. Her first collection of poetry, Displacement (2009), won a Bakeless Prize. Her second book, The Book of Endings (2017), was a finalist for the National Book Award. Harrison’s poems have been described as meditative and searching. “They show us a mind in motion,” writes Matthew Thorburn in an interview with Harrison for Ploughshares, “questing and questioning, wrestling with complex feelings and ideas.”


Harrison is the recipient of both a scholarship and a fellowship from the Sewanee Writers’ Conference, a fellowship from the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, and a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. The 2010 Philip Roth resident in poetry at Bucknell University, she has taught at Washington College and is currently an assistant professor at Towson University.
