Summer may be over, but there’s still time to gather in the meadow on an early fall afternoon. Come give yourself the gift of an hour of poetry.
The Silo Series is thrilled to present three poets — Jen Onken, Kerrin McCadden, and Sandra Lim.
Jen Ryan Onken lives and teaches in southern Maine. Recent poems have appeared in The Night Heron Barks, SWWIM, Zocalo Public Square, and on Maine Public Radio. Her chapbook Medea at the Laundromat was a 2021 finalist for the Larry Levis Post-Grad prize at Warren Wilson’s MFA Program for Writers, where she recently completed her MFA.
Sandra Lim is the author of three poetry collections: most recently The Curious Thing (W.W. Norton, 2021), and The Wilderness (W.W. Norton, 2014), which won the Barnard Women Poets Prize, and Loveliest Grotesque (Kore Press, 2006). She has received the Levis Reading Prize, a Literature Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and a Guggenheim Fellowship. She teaches creative writing at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and lives in Cambridge, MA.
Kerrin McCadden is the author of American Wake (Black Sparrow Press), currently a finalist for the New England Book Award; Landscape with Plywood Silhouettes (New Issues Poetry & Prose), winner of the New Issues Poetry Prize and the Vermont Book Award; and the chapbook Keep This to Yourself (Button Poetry), winner of the Button Poetry Prize. McCadden has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Vermont Studio Center, as well as the Sustainable Arts Foundation Writing Award. McCadden teaches at The Center for Technology, Essex and lives in South Burlington, Vermont.
Held in The Word Barn Meadow, this is an open-air, distanced, contactless event, and COVID conscious event.
