AWP 3:1:14 FiresideFence / Fence Books & Fireside Follies Reading Series present an offisite AWP reading & book release for Kristin Hatch’s THE MEATGIRL WHATEVER (winner of a 2012 National Poetry Series award), featuring Hatch, K. Silem Mohammad, Melissa Broder, Allyson Paty, and Natalie Eilbert.

Kristin Hatch’s book the meatgirl whatever won the National Poetry Series (selected by K. Silem Mohammad) was published by Fence Books, and her chapbook through the hour glass was recently published by CutBank Books. Her poems have appeared in various journals including The Black Warrior Review, Forklift, Ohio and The Indiana Review.

K. Silem Mohammad is the author of several books of poetry, including Deer Head Nation (Tougher Disguises Press, 2003), Breathalyzer (Edge Books, 2008), and The Front (Roof Books, 2009). He is Professor of English and Writing at Southern Oregon University.

Melissa Broder is the author of three collections of poems, including the recently released SCARECRONE and MEAT HEART. Poems appear in The Iowa Review, Fence, Guernica, The Awl, The Missouri Review, et al. The Chicago Tribune says her poetry “risks the divine” and Flavorwire calls her work “unbelievable and overwhelming for its imaginative power alone.” She has a cult following of about 10K teen girls, and a few grownups, on twitter.

Allyson Paty’s poems can be found in Tin House, Best New Poets 2012, Kenyon Review, Gulf Coast, the PEN Poetry Series, and elsewhere. Her chapbook, The Further Away, was published by [sic] Press in 2012. She is from New York, where she is a founding editor of Singing Saw Press.

Natalie Eilbert’s work has been featured in or is forthcoming from Tin House, Guernica, West Branch, Bat City Review, Handsome, Spinning Jenny, and elsewhere. Her chapbook, Conversation with the Stone Wife, is forthcoming from Bloof Books later this year. She lives and writes in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, where she is the founding editor of The Atlas Review.
