7PM THIS THURSDAY…

Poetry reading to launch Manual for Wayward Angels, Jessica Fenlon’s second book of poetry on Pittsburgh’s Six Gallery Press.

[ 2/15 heartbreak ] Hello lovelies! I am too sick to travel but I do believe the rest of the show will happen without me! And with Nathan, the editor extraordinaire helming 6 Gallery Press, reading as well. ♥ I miss you terribly, was so looking forward to this trip. But – the show goes on!!! In my stead! ~ Jessica Fenlon

New media artist JESSICA FENLON calls Milwaukee, Wisconsin home. In her digital art, Ms. Fenlon often glitches or breaks images in her ongoing exploration of public memory, semiotic reference, and epistemology. In her poetry, she constructs narratives from distilled memory and everyday life in our spectacular, our panopticon.

JEN ASHBURN is the author of the full-length poetry collection The Light on the Wall (Main Street Rag, 2016). She has work published in Chiron Review, Grey Sparrow, The MacGuffin, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Whiskey Island and other journals. She holds an MFA in creative writing from Chatham University, where she taught creative writing to inmates in the Allegheny County Jail through Chatham’s Words Without Walls program. Originally from southern Indiana, she spent four years in Japan and greater Asia, and now lives in Pittsburgh.

ANGELE ELLIS is author of UNDER THE KAUFMANN’s CLOCK (Six Gallery Press), a hybrid collection of poetry and flash fiction with photographs by Rebecca Clever, SPARED (A Main Street Rag Editors’ Choice Chapbook), and ARAB ON RADAR (Six Gallery), whose poems won an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. She lives in Friendship, where she sometimes sees the wings of former neighbors like Jessica Fenlon flashing in the skies.

KRISTOFER COLLINS is the books editor for Pittsburgh Magazine. He is the publisher of Low Ghost Press and co-director of The Bridge Series. He lives in Stanton Heights with his wife Dr. Anna Johnson and their two cats.

HANK MORRIS is a bum from way back. His poetry collection Anything Helps is forthcoming from Six Gallery Press.
