Hear essays Thursday at poetry series

From page A3 | April 03, 2013 |

Joe Wenderoth and Oliver Jones will read their essays at 8 p.m. Thursday at the John Natsoulas Gallery, 521 First St., as part of the Poetry Night Reading Series.

Wenderoth is a professor of English and creative writing at UC Davis. His work is widely anthologized, appearing in collections such as “The Anchor Book of New American Short Stories,” “Poetry 180,” “The Next American Essay” and “The Best American Prose Poems: From Poe to Present.” In 2003, the One Yellow Rabbit theater company performed an adaptation of Wenderoth’s experimental novel, “Letters to Wendy’s.”

When asked for an updated biography for this event, Wenderoth shared the following: “Joe Wenderoth was cut out of porous rock in the rain while electricity surged. The result was incredible — what wonderful eyes! Then things slowly but surely got worse.”

Jones is a staff writer at People Magazine, where he primarily covers the film industry. Now also a visiting professor of journalism at Emerson College, he has worked as a staff writer for Variety and Us Weekly magazines, and as a freelance writer for Premiere and Details magazines.

Jones received his bachelor’s degree in poetry and media studies from Hampshire College. Like James Merrill, Sylvia Plath and Gjertrud Schnackenberg, Jones is a past winner of the Glasscock Poetry Prize, the oldest intercollegiate poetry prize in the United States.

Some of the topics and language to be explored Thursday may be objectionable to some listeners, a news release said. If time, there will be a question-and-answer session after the main event. The open microphone will begin at 9 p.m.
