The Art Academy of Cincinnati is proud to welcome poets Matthew Guenette and Cathy Wagner for a free public reading of their work at 6:30PM on Tuesday, April 3rd in the AAC’s Liberal Arts Studio, Room N206. Please see bios for both readers below.
This is the second reading of the 2017-18 AAC Creative Writing Reading Series. The event is sponsored by the AAC’s Department of Liberal Arts, AAC Student Services, and the AAC chapter of Poems While You Wait.
Immediately following the featured readers, there will be a short OPEN MIC for anyone who’d like to share their work. As always, coffee and fresh-baked cakes of “nervous mania” will be available to take the edge off.
