Muse Times Two Presents:
Arda Collins & Kathryn Ugoretz
Arda Collins & Kathryn Ugoretz will read poetry as part of the Muse Times Two Spring Series.
Arda Collins was the 2008 winner of the annual Yale Series of Younger Poets competition. In her foreword to the Yale Series of Younger Poets publication in 2008, contest judge Louise Glück observed, “I know no poet whose sense of fraud, the inflated emptiness that substitutes for feeling, is more acute.” Collins’ poems have been published in journals and magazines including The New Yorker, The American Poetry Review, A Public Space, and others. She is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop where she was a Glenn Schaeffer Fellow.
Kathryn Ugoretz is the author of “The Courtship And Other Tales”. Gary Short calls her book “smart, uninhibited, and brave. Kathryn Ugoretz volleys deftly between satisfaction and surprise. We will recognize the world of these poems, but the normal won't stand still, and the result is unpredictable and delightful.” Ugoretz is the GUTS y Girls coordinator at the Santa Fe Institute, a science, technology, math and engineering program for 6th-8th grade girls in New Mexico.
