Please join us for the next reading of Triangle Quarterly--a series dedicated to exploring diverse styles and genres of poetry, curated and hosted by Anton Yakovlev.
Each reading features 3 poets writing in distinctly different modes. After the readings the 3 poets assemble onstage for a Q&A and a discussion where they react to each other's work!
Today's feature readers are: Keetje Kuipers, Pamela Hughes, Pamela Bailey Powers

Her poetry and prose have appeared in Narrative, Tin House, Virginia Quarterly Review, The New York Times Magazine, American Poetry Review, Orion, The Believer, and over a hundred other magazines. Her poems have also been featured as part of the Academy of American Poets’ Poem-a-Day series and read on NPR’s Writer’s Almanac. Kuipers has been a Wallace Stegner Fellow at Stanford University, a Bread Loaf fellow, and the Margery Davis Boyden Wilderness Writing Resident, among other honors. She now teaches at Seattle’s Hugo House and serves as Senior Editor at Poetry Northwest.
Pamela Hughes is the editor of Narrative Northeast, a literary and arts magazine that supports diverse voices and visions, LBGTQ and feminist voices, the environment, as well as the arts in New Jersey.

She graduated from Brooklyn College with an MFA in Creative Writing.
Pamela Bailey Powers makes poetry, art, theaterworks, and hand-bound books in limited editions. She’s been fortunate to have libraries publish her books at their expense and place them in their collections. The Rockport, MA Public and Bennington College libraries, among others, hold SHOAL—haiku, oil wash and watercolor art (under p. bailey powers), WITH—poems of mourning and ink drawings, and ZACH’S MAPLE SUGARING BOOK—a narrative poem with art and mini-movie, free on VIMEO, directed by poet/filmmaker Anton Yakovlev, narrated by poet/educator Jay Featherstone, and with music by Native American flute master Hawk Henries. WINTERCAT, a poem-fable with ink drawings is now available. Forthcoming are SCAPE—Gardens of the Fleeing-from and Nearing, poems with gold, silver, and black ink art, and GIFTED AND MOTH EATEN—poems and ink drawings in response to Pablo Neruda’s EL LIBRO DE LAS PREGUNTAS/THE BOOK OF QUESTIONS.
