Feature poet Katie Manning @ SFYS Open Mic in Provo – Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017

Provo Poetry and Speak for Yourself Open Mic are pleased to present feature poet Katie Manning from San Diego!

Katie Manning is the founding Editor-in-Chief of Whale Road Review and an Associate Professor of Writing at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. Her full-length poetry collection, Tasty Other, won the 2016 Main Street Rag Poetry Book Award. Find her at  www.katiemanningpoet.com. This upcoming August 17, Thursday evening from 7:30pm-9:00pm, Manning will travel through Enliten Cafe as the Speak for Yourself Open Mic hosts a night of conversation and poetry.

“Tasty Other is a stunning collection where the surreal feels terribly real—Manning’s dream poems about pregnancy and motherhood are funny, frightening, and absurd—which resembles parenthood perfectly. Manning’s voice invites us into her subconscious and makes us feel at home there. Tasty Other is a must read.” —J. Bruce Fuller, Author of Flood

Manning visits Speak for Yourself Open Mic as a guest of Provo Poetry. The reading and open mic are open to the general public.
