The 2015–2016 Loft Mentor Series in Poetry and Creative Prose presents poetry mentor Sean Hill reading along with program participants Elizabeth Horneber (nonfiction) and Jeanne Lutz (poetry).

Sean Hill was born and raised in Milledgeville, Georgia. He is the author of Dangerous Goods (Milkweed Editions, 2014) and Blood Ties & Brown Liquor (UGA Press, 2008). He’s received numerous awards including fellowships from Cave Canem, the Region 2 Arts Council, the Bush Foundation, Minnesota State Arts Board, The Jerome Foundation, The MacDowell Colony, the University of Wisconsin, and a Stegner Fellowship from Stanford University. Most recently, he received a Creative Writing Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. His poems have appeared in Callaloo, Harvard Review, The Oxford American, Poetry, Tin House, and numerous other journals, and in several anthologies including Black Nature and Villanelles. Hill is an editor at Broadsided Press, a monthly broadside publisher. He’s currently a visiting professor in the creative writing program at UA-Fairbanks. More information, as well as poems, can be found at his website: www.seanhillpoetry.com.

Elizabeth Horneber was raised in upstate New York, studied in Greece, and taught English in China. She earned her MFA in Creative Writing at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Her nonfiction essays have been published by AGNI, Hunger Mountain, Yemassee, Monkeybicycle, and others. She teaches creative writing in Mankato, Minnesota.

Jeanne Lutz grew up on a dairy farm in southern Minnesota, attended the University of Ireland, Galway, earned her BA in English from St. Catherine University, spent two years in Tokyo, and now divides her time between running the family farm and living in the North Loop of Minneapolis. She is the author of the chapbook Hearts and Harrows, co-written with Richard Donnelly, and her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Stories for the Seventh Generation, Conduit, Tinderbox Poetry Journal, Poetry City, USA, and elsewhere. She has also participated in readings at the Loft, Carol Connolly’s Readings by Writers series, Midstream, Barbaric Yawp, KAXE radio station, Poets and Pints, the Anderson Center, and the 2015 Cracked Walnut Literary Festival. “As a poet,” Jeanne Lutz says, “I think it’s important to keep asking Gauguin’s famous set of questions, ‘Where do we come from? Who are we? And where are we going?’”

There is a $5–$10 suggested admission fee for this event.
