Please join us in welcoming the new book by Martha Serpas, with an early-spring reading by Martha and Audrey Colombe!

Martha Serpas's new book THE DIENER arrives this month from LSU Press. She is the author of two other collections of poetry: The Dirty Side of the Storm (W.W. Norton); and Côte Blanche (New Issues). Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, The Nation, Southwest Review, and Image: A Journal of the Arts and Religion, as well as in a number of anthologies, including the Library of America’s American Religious Poems, The Art of the Sonnet, and Bearing the Mystery: Twenty Years of Image. She holds degrees in English and creative writing from Louisiana State, New York University, and the University of Houston, and a master of divinity from Yale Divinity School. A native of south Louisiana, she remains active in efforts to restore Louisiana’s wetlands. Since 2006 she has worked as a trauma chaplain at Tampa General Hospital. She teaches in the Creative Writing Program at the University of Houston.

Audrey Colombe lives part time in Texas, part time in Oregon, and writes about rural people, rural spaces. Her most recent nonfiction is about women at work in blue collar jobs (carpentry, iron work, firefighting), and she’s working on a novel that takes place in a former logging town on the Oregon Coast called Awake at the White Motel. She’s visiting faculty this year at UH’s Creative Writing Program, working with undergrads on their literary magazine, Glass Mountain, and with the graduate students on creative writing pedagogy.
