Please join us for a reading and book signing with award-winning returning poetry Fellows Mary Gilliland and Janet MacFadyen



Mary Gilliland held the Stanley Kunitz Fellowship at the Fine Arts Work Center and turned 40 a week before the end of those 7 months. Her poetry collection The Devil’s Fools won the 2021 Codhill Press Pauline Uchmanowicz Poetry Award—and will soon be in print and available for purchase. She is the author of two previous collections: Gathering Fire and The Ruined Walled Castle Garden. Her poems are widely published in print and online literary journals and most recently anthologized in Wild Gods: The Ecstatic in Contemporary Poetry and Prose, and Nuclear Impact: Broken Atoms In Our Hands. Mary retired early from teaching at Cornell in order to devote herself to poetry.



Janet MacFadyen is the author of five poetry collections, most recently the photo-poetry collaboration Adrift in the House of Rocks (New Feral Press, 2019) and Waiting to Be Born (Dos Madres Press, 2017). Her newest full-length collection, State of Grass, is forthcoming February 2023 from Salmon Poetry. She is a recipient of a 2022 Massachusetts Cultural Council grant, a 7-month Fine Arts Work Center fellowship, and a Cill Rialiag residency. Her work appears in CALYX, Crannóg, Osiris, Persimmon Tree, Scientific American, Soul-Lit, Sweet, The Blue Nib, and Terrain, and has been nominated for the Forward, Pushcart, and Best of the Net prizes. She is the managing editor of Slate Roof Press, a poetry chapbook publisher.
