Writers Under The Influence

Writers Under The Influence presents

Thursday, October 30, 8-9PM.
Atomic Books' Eightbar.
Hampden, Baltimore.

In WRITERS UNDER THE INFLUENCE, poets share their recent poems and talk about the forces -- other writers, works of art, music, movies, politics, pop culture -- that influence their work and process.

In Carrie Fountain's new collection, Instant Winner the wry, supple poems in Instant Winner take the form of prayers and meditations chronicling the existential shifts brought on by parenthood, spiritual searching, and the profound, often beguiling experience of being a self, inside a body, with a soul.

Rose Solari's the poems in The Last Girl tell their truths slant-wise, in spiky, inventive lines that sing their way under the reader’s skin. Solari's whole-hearted lyricism and range of tones sweep the reader from dark to light, from pain to joy, from unbearable loss to giddy delight.

CARRIE FOUNTAIN was born and raised in Mesilla, New Mexico. Her debut collection, Burn Lake, was published by Penguin in 2010. Her poems have appeared in American Poetry Review, Agni, and Tin House. She lives with her family in Austin, Texas.

ROSE SOLARI is the author of two full-length collections of poetry, Difficult Weather and Orpheus in the Park; the one-act play, Looking for Guenevere; and a novel, A Secret Woman. She has lectured and taught writing workshops at many institutions, including the University of Maryland–College Park, the Jung Society of Washington, and the Centre for Creative Writing at Kellogg College, University of Oxford. Her poems and essays have appeared in various magazines, journals, and anthologies. She is the recipient of several awards, including the Randall Jarrell Poetry Prize, an Academy of American Poets University Prize, and the Columbia Book Award. She lives in Bethesda, Maryland.

And hosted by
ELIZABETH HAZEN - a poet and essayist whose work has appeared or is forthcoming in Best American Poetry 2013, The Normal School, Southwest Review, The Threepenny Review, and other journals. She teaches English at Calvert School in Baltimore.

Writers Under The Influence takes place in Atomic Books' Eightbar - the backroom bottleshop serving beer, wine and soda.
