A collaboration between Salt Lake City Arts Council and 15 Bytes with support from Utah Humanities, READ LOCAL Onsite pairs emerging local writers with established writers for a reading and discussion of their work.
The event Thursday, April 11 at 7pm features two Utah poets: Rock Canyon Poets co-founder Trish Hopkinson and SLC’s Jennifer Tonge at Finch Lane Gallery (45 Finch Lane, SLC).
TRISH HOPKINSON’S poems have been published in Tinderbox, The Penn Review, and elsewhere. Her third chapbook Footnote was published by Lithic Press in 2017. She is co-founder of Rock Canyon Poets and Editor-in-Chief of the group’s annual anthology, Orogeny.
JENNIFER TONGE’S poems have appeared in numerous journals, including the New England Review. Most recently, her work has appeared as part of the Visible Poetry Project and been featured on Zoetic Press’s podcast The Literary Whip.
15 Bytes Literary Editor Calvin Jolley will moderate the evening.
