Special Event: Interleaving: Poets in Conversation

Interleaving: Poets in Conversation

Join the Department of Language Studies and the Arts at 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, October 23, in the Selby Auditorium in Lewis Hall, for a night of poetry reading featuring Carol Ann Moon and Amanda Forrester. 

Poetry is an ancient form of summons. This reading is no exception. One woman removes words from pre-existing texts and the dead are summoned. The other woman removes pre-texts for remaining in her death and she summons her existence. What remains is the interleaving! 


Carol Ann Moon holds an MFA in Creative Writing (poetry in the expanded field) from Stetson University, and is a professor in the Daniel A. Cannon Memorial Library at Saint Leo University. Her poems have appeared in the Sandhill Review, the Indiana Voice Journal, the Lipstick Party Magazine, and at a Miami bus stop (NE 12th Avenue & NE 160th Street) as part of an O Miami Festival poetry contest.

Amanda Forrester received her MFA from the University of Tampa.  Her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in Indolent BooksWhat Rough Beast, Collective Unrest, and the Sandhill Review.  She serves on the executive board of YellowJacket Press and snuggles with her fur babies when she isn’t working long hours as a data analyst at Saint Leo University.  Follow her on Twitter @ajforrester75.

English majors, aspiring writers, bookworms and all creative minds, don’t miss this event! Interleaving: Poets in Conversation is free and open to the public.
