Poetry reading featuring Jeff Alessandrelli and Felicity Fenton.

Jeff Alessandrelli is most recently the author of the poetry collection Fur Not Light (2019), which The Kenyon Review called an “example of radical humility…its poems enact a quiet but persistent empathy in the world of creative writing.” Entitled Nothing of the Month Club, an expanded version of Fur Not Light was released in the United Kingdom in 2021. In addition to his writing Alessandrelli also directs the nonprofit book press/record label Fonograf Editions. https://jeffalessandrelli.net/ His upcoming book of fiction And Yet from PANK can be preordered here.

Felicity Fenton‘s work (social practice, photography, words, installation) has been featured in public and private spaces around the globe. She is a RACC grant recipient, was artist in residence at the Washington County Arts Council and her collaborative project – Soul Recovery Systems – was nominated for an Index Design Award (Design to Improve Life). She earned my MFA from Vermont’s Goddard College.

Some of her stories and essays can be seen in Fanzine, Split Lip Press, Wigleaf, The Iowa Review, The Masters Review, Pidgeonholes, Denver Quarterly, Passages North, and others. Her longish lyric essay, User Not Found was published with the mighty Future Tense Books in November, 2018. Elegy For My Art Monster / Tumors Everywhere, a slim book of fiction co-written with Drew Burk, will be published and hand bound by Spork Press in the summer of 2022.
