Guys. GUYS. It is the first Gulf Coast Reading of the year. It's gonna knock your socks off. Come to Rudz to kibbitz and revel in the talent of your colleagues (and special guest Kathleen Winter).

Kathleen Winter is the author of Nostalgia for the Criminal Past (Elixir Press), winner of the Antivenom Prize and the 2013 Bob Bush Memorial Award for a first book of poems. She is the Fall 2015 Dobie Paisano Fellow, selected by the University of Texas and Texas Institute of Letters. She has been awarded fellowships at the Dora Maar House, Ménerbes, France; James Merrill House; Cill Rialaig Retreat; Prague Summer Program, and Vermont Studio Center. Her poems have appeared in Tin House, AGNI Online, The New Republic, Memorious, Field, Gulf Coast and Poetry London. Winter grew up in San Antonio and teaches at Napa Valley College.

Will Burns graduated high school in Arkansas (in a little town called Methlehem) and went straight to the PhD program at the University of Houston to study fiction writing. He can wink with both eyes at once. He is great with scorpions of all kinds. On this night, He will read much fiction.

Jonathan Meyer was born in—and writes about—Texas. He is a second-year MFA student at UH and an assistant editor for Gulf Coast. His fiction and essays have appeared in Microchondria, Gauge, and The Emerson Review. He is at work on a novel about his two favorite subjects: rock n’ roll and the Texas oil industry.

Yerra Sugarman is the author of two poetry collections: Forms of Gone and The Bag of Broken Glass, both published by The Sheep Meadow Press. She received a 2011 National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and awards from PEN American Center, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Poetry Society of America, and The Nation magazine.
