SECOND WIND: Listen to Rachel Mindell and Kim Bell read

photokimbellEvery week we record Second Wind for the listening pleasure of those who weren’t able to make it in person. In anticipation of tonight’s reading, here are the vocalizations of Rachel Mindell and Kim Bell. Both are second year MFAers, Rachel in poetry and Kim in creative nonfiction.

Rachel's writing has appeared in Horse Less Review, Delirious Hem, interrupture, Caliban, Barn Owl Review, and Pity Milk. Her dog and cat run the household. Some of favorite authors include Anne Carson, CD Wright, Milan Kundera, Hafiz, Julio Cortazar, John Berryman, Alberto Rios, Toni Morrison, Mary Jo Bang and you. She loves Harper’s, The American Poetry Review, Jacket2, and Diagram, among many.

Kim received her B.A. in English from Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, and when she’s not corrupting young minds as a T.A. out west, she lives and works in Boston, Massachusetts.  Some of her favorite Non Fiction authors include Mary Karr, Jeannette Walls, Nick Flynn, Judy Blunt, Alexandra Fuller, David Foster Wallace, T.R. Reid, Jim Harrison, and Melanie Thernstrom.

Second Wind is a reading series that pairs second-year MFA students in the University of Montana’s Creative Writing Program with an established community or faculty writer. Second Wind takes place every Sunday at 6 pm at the Badlander, 208 Ryman St, Missoula. (Click here for directions.)
