17 Poets! reading Series

THURSDAY, APRIL 15, 2010 @ 8:00 p.m.
17 Poets! Literary & Performance Series hosts a reading featuring poet RAYMOND "MOOSE" JACKSON and fiction writer JENNIFER STEWART.

Ms. Stewart is a 2006 graduate of UNO's Low-Residency MFA in poetry. She currently works for the Low-Residency Program as the Coordinator of the Study Abroad Programs in Writing. She earned her undergraduate degree, a BA in History and English, at Emory & Henry College in 2001. Publications include Florida English, Sentence, Poets' Corner - Fieralingue, Exquisite Corpse, and Big Bridge. Ms, Stewart lives in New Orleans, writes in coffee shops, and in her spare time, teaches people how to bend funny ways.

When it comes to poetry, Mr. Jackson is considered one of New Orleans' most favorite sons. He is the author of Illusion Fields and most recently Bitter Ink. Jackson is a consummate world traveler of the earth's byways, railways, and highways. In the fall 2009, he astounded audiences with his play Loup Garou produced by Art Spot Productions. As a professional human being, Jackson is arguably second to none. His poems have appeared in dozens of publications including YAWP: a Journal of Poetry & Art, Big Bridge, and Exquisite Corpse.
