Join us for a celebration of two celebrated University of Montana MFA graduates, Andrew Martin (Early Work, 2018) and Alicia Mountain (High Ground Coward, 2018). These readings are sponsored by Cutbank, the University of Montana literary magazine, and the Pride Foundation. This event will be directly followed by the the Cutbank sponsored current MFA reading.
ANDREW MARTIN's stories have appeared in The Paris Review, Zyzzyva, and Tin House's Flash Fridays series, and his non-fiction has been published by The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, The Washington Post, and others. Early Work is his first novel.
ALICIA MOUNTAIN’s first collection, High Ground Coward (Iowa, 2018), was selected by Brenda Shaughnessy as a winner of the Iowa Poetry Prize. She is also the author of the digital chapbook Thin Fire, selected by Natalie Diaz and published by BOAAT Press. She has been a Pushcart Prize nominee, an Idyllwild Arts Fellow and a resident at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts. She is a lesbian poet, PhD student, and assistant editor of the Denver Quarterly. Mountain earned her MFA at the University of Montana in Missoula. Keep up with her on twitter at @HiGroundCoward.
