Poetry Reading, May 27, Fleeting Pages

Join us at Fleeting Pages on Friday, May 27th at 7:00 PM for a fantastical journey into poetry, featuring Carolyne Whelan, Beth Fleeson, Elizabeth Ashe, and Courtney Lora Lang. These four talented, local writers will dazzle you with a round robin, work trading, no holds barred evening of live poetry.

This is a free event.

Carolyne Whelan received her BA from the College of Santa Fe where she won Best Poetry Collection, and her MFA from Chatham University where she was a finalist for Best Thesis. She was awarded a partial scholarship to the Vermont Studio Center. Her long prose poem/biography, The Glossary of Tania Aebi, will be published in August by Finishing Line Press and is now available for sale online.

Beth Fleeson is lucky enough to live and study with a Zen Master, her own five month old, Oliver. In her spare time, she serves as adjunct faculty at CCBC and Penn State Beaver. She earned her MFA at Chatham University with concentrations in Poetry and Non-fiction. She enjoys cloth diapering,

Elizabeth Ashe is a poet and sculptor. In her work she melds poetry/text/the oral tradition with the physical and site specific. She received an MFA in Creative Writing from Chatham. It took her a while but now she loves Pittsburgh, even though she's in round two of grad school in Baltimore.

Courtney Lora Lang is a printmaker and a writer. When not professing the wonders of creative writing or research to college undergraduates, she spends her time wandering the wilds of western Pennsylvania with her two dogs. Her two favorite words are currently adjunct and sublet.
