ACCLAIMED POETS RETURN TO UH FOR INPRINT STUDIO READINGS

Houston literary audiences will soon be treated to an evening of poetry delivered by two nationally recognized authors.

Pimone Triplett and Andrew Feld, both University of Houston Creative Writing Program (CWP) alumni, will read their works at 6 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 8 at UH’s Honors College Commons at M.D. Anderson Library. The event is the latest in the Inprint Studio Reading Series (ISRS) which is co-sponsored by CWP and Inprint Inc. in association with DiverseWorks and the Honors College. All readings are free and open to the public.

“This event allows UH students and the public at large to hear the work of some of our exciting recent graduates.” said J. Kastely, director of CWP. “One of the goals of the Inprint Studio Reading Series is to bring back UH alumni so that Houston audiences can see how UH creative writing graduates are shaping the current literary landscape.”

Praised for her lyrical ability, Triplett is the author of “The Price of Light” and “Running the Picture.” Her poetry has been published in The Paris Review and The New England Review.

Feld received a Wallace Stegner Fellowship from Stanford University, a Michener Foundation grant and a “Discovery”/The Nation Award. His collection “Citizen: Poems” won the 2003 National Poetry Series Open Competition. Feld has contributed poetry to The Nation, The New England Review and Triquarterly.

Sponsored by the University of Houston’s Creative Writing Program (CWP) and Inprint Inc., ISRS offers public readings in modest, comfortable venues to further connect audiences with some of the country’s brightest writers and their works. The next installment of the series will feature essayist Emily Fox Gordon on March 22 at UH.
