POETRY READING WITH MARY MAXWELL AND ELIZABETH SAVAGE

Poets Mary Maxwell and Elizabeth Savage read from their work.

Mary Maxwell has published five volumes of poems, most recently Oral Lake. She also recently completed a volume of nonfiction about the genesis and meaning of the movie, The Night of the Hunter, whose origins can be traced back to her childhood hometown of Clarksburg, West Virginia. A winner of the “Discovery”/The Nation Award and the recipient of residential fellowship from the Camargo Foundation in Cassis, France, she has also been a visiting artist and scholar at the American Academy in Rome.

Since 2008, Elizabeth Savage has served as poetry editor for Kestrel: A Journal of Literature & Art. Her third book of poetry, Daylight Scoured, and a fourth chapbook, Detail, will be published later this year. New poems appear or are forthcoming in Denver Quarterly, Hotel Amerika, and Shenandoah. New critical works appear in Quo Anima: spirituality and innovation in contemporary women’s poetry and Journal of Modern Literature. She is a professor of English at Fairmont State University in Fairmont, West Virginia.
