On Wednesday, January 15, at 7:00pm the South Jersey Poets Collective welcomes Tyler Mills to Stockton University’s Noyes Arts Garage (2200 Fairmount Ave, Atlantic City, NJ 08401).
Our usual Open Mic, where participants read one poem that is less than two minutes long, will run from 7:00pm-7:45pm. Please arrive by 6:50pm to secure a spot in the Open.
After the break, participants will return to a free take-home writing prompt penned by Barbara Daniels.
Then, Tyler Mills will read and sign books. Tyler Mills is the author of two full-length books of poems, Hawk Parable (winner of the Akron Poetry Prize, University of Akron Press 2019) and Tongue Lyre (winner of the Crab Orchard Series in Poetry First Book Award, Southern Illinois University Press 2013), as well as The City Scattered (2019 Snowbound Chapbook Award, forthcoming from Tupelo Press). Her poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The Guardian, The Believer, and Poetry, and her essays in AGNI, Copper Nickel, and The Rumpus. Her mixed media visual works have appeared in Poetry and Tupelo Quarterly. The recipient of residencies from Yaddo, Ragdale, and the Vermont Studio Center, and fellowships from Bread Loaf, Sewanee, and the Kenyon Review Writers Workshop, Tyler Mills is on faculty at 24PearlStreet, the online writing program for the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, and lives in Brooklyn, NY.
World Above is made possible with support from The Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University, Stockton’s Center for Community Engagement, and the Atlantic City Arts Foundation.
