Art on Madison is pleased to present Kevin A. Risner as the featured reader for our monthly POETRY + reading series on Tuesday, July 17, 2018 at 7:00pm. Each month POETRY + features a different writer or poet to present an extended reading at the gallery. The aim of this reading series is to shine the spotlight on a single writer, providing them with the platform to present a body of work and to connect with their audience.
Kevin A. Risner is ESL Coordinator at the Cleveland Institute of Art, where he also teaches writing, narrative, and philosophy. His work can be found online in many locations: Rise Up Review, Rising Phoenix Review, the murmur house, Noble/Gas Quarterly, The Wire’s Dream, Ghost City Review, The Bookends Review, and elsewhere. His first chapbook — My Ear is a Sieve— was published by Bottlecap Press in 2017. A second collection of poems about his dreams, Lucid, was just released by The Poetry Annals. He also writes about beer from time to time at www.porchdrinking.com. POETRY + is free and open to the public.
Art on Madison’s new location is 14203 Madison Ave. Lakewood, OH 44107. #poetryreading #clevelandpoet #poetrycommunity #artonmadison #communityovercompetition #artgallerylife #poetsofinstagram #lakewoodohio #clevelandart #poetry #poems
