Sterling and Laurel present new work

I enjoyed attending a reading presented by the UW-Madison Institute for Creative Writing.

Held at Avol’s Books downtown, last night’s program featured two writers.


Sterling HolyWhiteMountain is the 2010-2011 James C. McCreight Fiction Fellow at the wisconsin institute for creative writing, UW-Madison. He was born and raised in northwest Montana on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. He attended the University of Montana, where he majored in creative writing, and from which he accidentally graduated in 2005. He received his MFA from the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop in 2010. After finishing his time as a Wisconsin fellow, he plans on returning to the rez.
Here’s his reading.


Laurel Bastian is the 2010-2011 Halls Emerging Artist Fellow at the wisconsin institute for creative writing, UW-Madison. She founded, coordinates, and teaches with the Writers in Prisons Project, produces and hosts the Crosshatxh Poetry series, and has work seasoning print and online journals (see links at laurelbastian.org). She is this year’s recipient of the Elizabeth Curry Prize in Poetry and two Pushcart nominations.
Here’s her reading.
