AWP offsite reading: Monica Drake, Stephanie Land, Kelly Sundberg
March 20, 2019
PNCA's Creative Writing programs and MA in Critical Studies program are sponsoring many off-site AWP events this coming week, and one I'm most excited about is the event Monica Drake is hosting—a reading with bestselling authors Stephanie Land and Kelly Sundberg at Corporeal Center, March 29, 7pm.
Kelly Sundberg is the author of Goodbye, Sweet Girl: A Story of Domestic Violence and Survival. Her essays have appeared in Guernica, Gulf Coast, The Rumpus, Denver Quarterly, Slice Magazine, and others. Her essay “It Will Look Like a Sunset” was selected for inclusion in Best American Essays 2015, and other essays have been listed as notables in the same series. She has a PhD in Creative Nonfiction from Ohio University, and she has been the recipient of fellowships or grants from Vermont Studio Center, A Room of Her Own Foundation, Dickinson House, and The National Endowment for the Arts.
Stephanie Land is the author of the instant New York Times Best Seller MAID: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive. As a freelance writer, her work has been featured in the New York Times, New York Review of Books, Washington Post, Guardian; Vox, Salon, and many other outlets.
