BJ Atwood-Fukuda, author of poetry and prose, will be reading from her recent work on Monday, August 12 at the Woods Hole Public Library at 7:30 PM.
BJ Atwood-Fukuda has an MFA from The New School and is a founding member of the New York workshop, Writing at the Crossroads. Her work has appeared in Great American Prose Poems from Poe to the Present (Scribners, 2003) and Free Radicals: American Poets Before Their First Books (Subpress, 2004), as well as in American Letters, Commentary, The Mad Hatter’s Review, Tupelo Quarterly and The Wall (wittypartition.org), among others. She lives and writes in Spuyten Duyvil, NY (a section of the Bronx) and Woods Hole.
BJ’s reading this year–her seventh annual–will feature pages from a work-in-progress, as well as some recent poems. Those who know BJ’s work agree that it does not lend itself to easy categorization. Some have called it “prose poetry”. BJ favors the term “riff “. As always, she invites questions and comments from listeners.
