Poetry + at Art on Madison in Lakewood Welcomes Kevin A. Risner

Tue 7/17 @ 7PM

This month’s POETRY+ reading, hosted by Art on Madison for emerging and established writers in Northeast Ohio, brings Kevin A. Risner, English as a Second Language Coordinator at Cleveland Institute of Art.

Risner’s first, oddly-named chapbook, My Ear is a Sieve, was published last year by Bottlecap Press, and a second collection of poems about his REM sleep experiences, Lucid, was just released by the Poetry Annals.

Risner also teaches writing, narrative and philosophy. If you want a preview of his works, check out Rise Up Review, Rising Phoenix Review, Noble/Gas Quarterly, Wire’s Dream, Ghost City Review and more online.

POETRY + offers a rare venue, where just one writer gets to pick his or her platform, the duration of presentation and a chance to connect directly with the audience.

Admission is free.
