Poet-editors coming to Grounds Oct. 25

Two widely published Kentucky poets and fine-press editors, Sarah Gorham and Jeffrey Skinner, will visit U.Va. Oct. 25 as the Peters Rushton Visiting Writers. They will work with U.Va. students during that time and give a reading, free and open to the public, that night at the University Bookstore at 8 p.m.

Gorham is the author of several poetry volumes, including The Tension Zone, Don’t Go Back to Sleep, and The Night Lifted Us and is co-editor of Last Call: Poems on Alcohol, Addiction, and Deliverance. She is founder and editor-in-chief of Sarabande Press, a distinguished non-profit literary press based in Louisville.

Skinner’s poetry collections include Late Stars, A Guide to Forgetting, The Company of Heaven, and The Moving Sidewalk. Gorham’s husband, he co-edited Last Call and serves as editorial consultant for Sarabande Books. He directs the creative writing program at the University of Louisville.

Founded in 1994 as an alternative to mainstream publishing, Sarabande has published dozens of high-quality poetry, essays, and short fiction books and has received National Endowment for the Arts and private support. Gorham and Skinner have said they strongly believe that fine book design contributes to a literary work’s value and stress that they are committed to keeping their authors’ published titles in print.

For information, call the Creative Writing Program in the U.Va. English department at 924-6675.
