During the poetry residency that begins in October, Aubrey will facilitate poetry workshops, a community poetry reading, and a poetry ezine. Through the residency, she will encourage community-based poets who are developing their craft outside of a formal academic setting, and to provide a forum to showcase their work through the residency’s online poetry journal and a public reading of their poems. She will also release a limited edition broadside of one of her poems produced by illustrator, Alex Iaccarino. The biannual Collins Poetry Residency is sponsored by 918studio of LeClaire.
