Piotr Gwiazda, Walter Cybulski, and Caitlin Reid
Poetry Reading

Sunday, December 11, 2016 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Poets Walter Cybulski, author of Nothing to Say and Saying It, and Piotr Gwiazda, who reads from his recently published third collection, Aspects of Strangers, are joined by The Writer’s Center Undiscovered Voices Fellowship 2014 recipient, Caitlin Reid. She has earned several scholarships to continue her education, including The Gettysburg Review Writer’s Conference and a Murphy Writing Seminar in Wales.

Piotr Gwiazda is the author of three books of poetry, Aspects of Strangers,  Messages: Poems & Interview, and Gagarin Street (winner of the Washington Writers’ Publishing House Poetry Contest, 2005). His translation of Polish writer Grzegorz Wróblewski’s book of prose poems Kopenhaga was published by Zephyr Press in 2013. He has also published two critical studies, US Poetry in the Age of Empire, 1979-2012 and James Merrill and W.H. Auden: Homosexuality and Poetic Influence. Gwiazda’s poems have been featured in anthologies The Bedside Guide to No Tell Motel, Poetic Voices Without Borders, and Two Weeks: A Digital Anthology of Contemporary Poetry, among others. His poems, translations, essays, and reviews have appeared in many journals, including AGNI, Barrow Street, Chicago Review, Denver Quarterly, The Nation, The Seattle Review, and  XCP: Cross Cultural Poetics.

Walter Cybulski’s poetry has been in many journals including America, Propago, Eyecatcher, and Rivanna. His latest book of poetry, Nothing to Say and Saying It, published in 2015 by Black Kettle Press, drew accolades from readers and reviewers online. “If American poetry is one of your passions, add this volume to your shelf alongside Williams, Bishop, Berryman, Oppenheimer. Cybulski will confirm your love of poetry.” And this: “Plain spoken and brilliant, these poems address the abyss of time with a combination of sorrow and jauntiness.”

Caitlin Reid began her poetry manuscript, Almagest, with the support of the Undiscovered Voices Scholarship from The Writer’s Center. Her writing has earned the 2015 Larry Neal Writers’ Award for poetry and two Artist Fellowships from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. She's currently a student in the MFA program at The University of Maryland.
