We welcome Allison Pitinii Davis to the first of the online programs in the ongoing Wheeling Poetry Series (view digital WPS booklet for this program). Launched in September 2015, the “Wheeling Poetry Series” features readings by some of the finest poets from our Appalachian region and beyond.
Allison Pitinii Davis is the author of Line Study of a Motel Clerk (Baobab Press, 2017), a finalist for the National Jewish Book Award and the Ohioana Book Award, and Poppy Seeds (Kent State UP, 2013), winner of the Wick Poetry Chapbook Prize. Her work has appeared in Best American Poetry, The New Republic, The Academy of American Poets website, and elsewhere. She holds fellowships from Stanford University's Wallace Stegner program, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, and the Severinghaus Beck Fund for Study at Vilnius Yiddish Institute. Originally from Youngstown, Ohio, she is a PhD candidate in English and Creative Writing at The University of Tennessee, where she served as an editor of Grist: A Journal of the Literary Arts and writes about the intersection of labor, diaspora, and gender in the Rust Belt.
This program will be available to watch live on Facebook Live, on YouTube, and on the OCPL website's LWB Livestream page. Log into your Facebook or YouTube account during the program to leave questions for Allison in the comments box.
