American poet Laura McCullough will conclude this year’s Writers in the Woods series at Sierra Nevada College on April 6 from 6-7 p.m. in TCES 139-141.

Writers in the Woods brings talented poets, novelists, writers and other literati to campus on Friday nights to share their work in an interactive setting, followed by a Saturday morning workshop led by the speaker from the night before.

McCullough’s notable books of poems include Jersey Mercy, Rigger Death & Hoist Another, and Panic (winner of the Kinereth Genseler Award, Alice James Books). In addition to her books of poetry, McCullough also conceived and curated two anthologies on poetry, A Sense of Regard: Essays on Poetry and Race and The Room and The World: Essays on the Poet Stephen Dunn. Her prose and poetry have been seen widely in places such as Michigan Quarterly Review, The Southern Review, The American Poetry Review, and Best American Poetry, to name a few. McCullough is a New Jersey resident, teaching full time at Brookdale Community College, NJ, and is on the faculty of the Sierra Nevada College low-residency MFA program.

All Writers in the Woods events are open to the public, free for students and allow students the opportunity to gain a full credit for attending both the Friday night talk and Saturday morning workshop, not to mention free food and wine are provided. Students can sign up for all Writers in the Woods events online at SierraNevada.edu.

Other upcoming events include the Annual Tahoe Poetry Slam on April 27.
