Our Next Event:  Laureate's Writers Series presents Mark Wunderlich   Tuesday July 7th, 7:00pm

Our July 2015 edition of The Laureate's Writers Series will feature award winning poet Mark Wunderlich.

Born in 1968, Mark Wunderlich grew up in Fountain City, Wisconsin. He holds an MFA from Columbia University School of the Arts and a BA in German Literature and English from the University of Wisconsin.

He is the author of The Earth Avails (Graywolf Press, 2014) and Voluntary Servitude (Graywolf Press, 2004). His first collection, The Anchorage (University of Massachusetts Press, 1999), won the Lambda Literary Award. As J. D. McClatchy said of Wunderlich’s debut, "The Anchoragebravely takes up the raw mess of desire and pain, the cold ache of longing and loss, and in sleek and searing poems exposes the way we live now to the larger powers of the racing heart and the radiant imagination.”

He is the recipient of the Wallace Stegner Fellowship from Stanford University, Writers at Work Fellowship, the Amy Lowell Traveling Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and two fellowships from the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown. He has also received grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the Bread Loaf Writers Conference.

Wunderlich has taught at Stanford University and Barnard College and in the graduate writing programs at Sarah Lawrence College, San Francisco State University, Ohio University, and Columbia University. Wunderlich is currently a Professor of Literature at Bennington College in Vermont, where he has taught since 2004. He lives in New York’s Hudson River Valley.

Following Mark's reading will be our ever-popular open mic session for local writers.  There is a strict 5 minute time limit for each participant.
