On Wednesday, April 26th at 7pm the South Jersey Poets Collective welcomes Cynthia Arrieu-King as the featured poet to World Above Free Poetry Night at Stockton University’s Noyes Arts Garage (2200 Fairmount Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401).
The evening starts with the usual Open Mic, where participants read one poem that is less than two minutes long. The break will occur just before 8pm, and participants will return to a free take-home writing prompt, introduced by the host or the prompt’s author. Then, Cynthia Arrieu-King will read.
Cynthia Arrieu-King is an associate professor of creative writing at Stockton University and a former Kundiman Fellow. Her books include People are Tiny in Paintings of China (Octopus 2010), Manifest chosen by Harryette Mullen for the Gatewood Prize (Switchback 2013) and a collaborative book of poems written with the late Hillary Gravendyk, Unlikely Conditions (1913 Press 2016). She is the editor of the Asian-Anglophone edition of dusie and a contributor to Bitch Flicks.
