Start your Halloweekend off right and come get scared silly by the literary prowess of three ghoulishly good writers.
CONOR BRACKEN is from Virginia but writes and teaches in Texas, where he received his MFA from the University of Houston. He likes adventurous gastronomy, crossword puzzles, and, per his wife, ‘weird music.’ Once, Robert Hass almost ran him over at second base during a friendly game of softball.
Before he began writing fiction, DINO ENRIQUE PIACENTINI wrote travel articles, art reviews, and audio tour scripts, all while working as an arts administrator for various museums and galleries in San Francisco. His work has since been published in The Massachusetts Review, Toronto Globe & Mail, and Confrontation, among other places. A native Californian, he came to Houston to pursue an MFA in Fiction at the University of Houston’s Creative Writing Program. Currently, he also serves as Fiction Editor for Gulf Coast Magazine.
KATHLEEN WINTER’S book Nostalgia for the Criminal Past (Elixir Press) won the Antivenom Prize and the 2013 Bob Bush Memorial Award. She was granted a 2014 Brown Foundation fellowship at the Dora Maar House, Ménerbes, France, as well as residencies at the James Merrill House; Cill Rialaig Retreat, and Vermont Studio Center. Her poems have been published in Tin House, AGNI, The New Republic, Field, Poetry London, Cincinnati Review, Memorious, Gulf Coast and other journals.
She received her MFA from Arizona State in 2011.
