Kate Colby & Nick Gulig Poetry Reading

September 15, 2023 @ 7:30 pm8:30 pm CDT

Kate Colby’s nine books of poetry and essays include I Mean, Dream of the Trenches, and, most recently Reverse Engineer. She has received awards and fellowships from the Poetry Society of America, Rhode Island State Council for the Arts, the Dodd Research Center at University of Connecticut, and Harvard’s Woodberry Poetry Room. She grew up in Massachusetts, where she helped found and establish the Gloucester Writers Center, and currently lives in Providence. “I have written at length about Oppen, Creeley, Stein, Olson, William Carlos Williams and other adjacent poets, so writing about Niedecker was overdue. I grew up in New England, which shapes and deeply informs my work, so I have a particular interest in other poets who write less about than from place.”

Nicholas Gulig was appointed Poet Laureate of Wisconsin through 2024. He is a Thai-American native of Eau Claire. Gulig is the author of Orient (Cleveland State University Poetry Center Open Book Competition, 2018), Book of Lake (CutBank, 2016), and North of Order (YesYes Books, 2015). A 2011 Fulbright Fellow, Gulig has received numerous other accolades for his work including the Rushkin Art Club Poetry Award, the Black Warrior Review Poetry Prize, the Grist ProForma Award, and the CSU Open Book Poetry Prize. Currently, he works as Associate Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and lives with his wife and two daughters in Fort Atkinson.
