Open Door Reading: Annie Kim and Seema Reza

Sun, 12 Mar, 2017 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Visiting poet Annie Kim reads from her debut collection, Into the Cyclorama, winner of the 2015 Michael Waters Poetry Prize. Seema Reza is author of When the World Breaks Open, a non-linear memoir tracing her journey to build a writing and art program in military hospitals. The reading will be followed by a reception and book signing.

Annie Kim’s first poetry collection, Into the Cyclorama, won the 2015 Michael Waters Poetry Prize and is published by the University of Southern Indiana. Her poems have appeared, or are forthcoming, in Kenyon Review, Ninth Letter, Mudlark, Asian American Literary Review, DMQ Review, and elsewhere.  A graduate of Warren Wilson College’s MFA Program for Writers and the recipient of fellowships from the Virginia Center for Creative Arts and Hambidge Center, Kim works at the University of Virginia School of Law as the Assistant Dean for Public Service. 

Seema Reza is a poet and essayist based outside of Washington, DC, where she coordinates and facilitates a unique hospital arts program that encourages the use of the arts as a tool for narration, self-care and socialization among a military population struggling with emotional and physical injuries. An alumnus of VONA and Goddard College, she was awarded the 2015 Col. John Gioia Patriot Award by USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore for her work with service members.
