The fine people behind the publication of Big Muddy: A Journal of the Mississippi River Valley, have invited me to join them for a reading this Wednesday, May 24, at 7 p.m. at 33 Wine Shop and Bar here in St. Louis. The event is free and open to the public.
Also on the evening’s roster:
Born and raised in St. Louis, Ron A. Austin has received a 2016 RAC fellowship and published short stories in Ninth Letter, Story Quarterly, and Black Warrior Review.
Author of Liner Notes and Pilot Season, with stories in Zoetrope: All Story, Hobart, and Michigan Quarterly Review, among other venues; he is an Assistant Professor at Southeast Missouri State where he also directs the University Press.
Charlotte is currently pursuing an MFA in Poetry at the University of Missouri – St Louis, and she has work published or forthcoming in journals such as Salamander Review, The Normal School, and CALYX Journal.

A Nashville TN native with an MFA from UMSL, Victoria Walls teaches at SLU and UMSL, and serves as an assistant editor at WomenArts Quarterly. Her poetry appears in two issues of Slippery Elm Literary Journal.
It should be an eclectic and fun night of poetry and prose (and wine).
