MORE ABOUT THE READERS

Jennifer Franklin’s new poetry book is If Some God Shakes Your House. Ed Hirsch says, “Jennifer Franklin throws her voice in these taut lyrics and prose poems that view her own experience through a dramatic lens, the voice of Antigone come back to face the rockiness of our moment and the inevitability of death." Franklin’s previous books include No Small Gift, and Looming. Her work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and has appeared in American Poetry Review, Los Angeles Review, Prairie Schooner, The Paris Review, Guernica, and elsewhere. Franklin teaches at the Hudson Valley Writers’ Center, where she runs the reading series and serves as the Program Director. She also teaches in Manhattanville’s MFA Program, in New York.

Diane Seuss’s most recent book is frank: sonnets, winner of the Pulitzer Prize 2022. The Pulitzer committee said, “A virtuosic collection that inventively expands the sonnet form to confront the messy contradictions of contemporary America, including the beauty and the difficulty of working-class life in the Rust Belt.” The Rumpus says, “Seuss understands the labor of a sonnet’s particular space—the intensity and the balance, the anaphora and the rhyme that can gallop wild inside the sonnets field.” Seuss’ previous books are Still Life with Two Dead Peacocks and a Girl, Four-Legged Girl, Wolf Lake, White Gown Blown Open, and It Blows You Hollow . Her new collection, Modern Poetry, is forthcoming from Graywolf Press in 2024. Her writing has appeared in the Georgia Review, Brevity, The Best American Poetry 2014, Missouri Review, Able Muse, and elsewhere. Her honors also include the PEN/Voelcker Prize, Los Angeles Times Book Prize, Guggenheim Fellowship, and National Book Critics Circle Award. She lives in rural Michigan.
