PLU Open Mic featuring Jonathan Moody

While the weather might not know what it’s doing, Paris Lit Up does! On July 6, we’re hosting our weekly open mic featuring poet Jonathan Moody all the way over from Texas! Sigh-up starts at 8, the stage from 8.30/45.

Jonathan Moody holds an MFA from the University of Pittsburgh.  He’s also a Cave Canem graduate fellow whose poetry has appeared in such publications as African American Review, Beloit Poetry Journal, Boston Review, The Common, Gulf Coast, and Harvard Review Online.  Moody is the author of The Doomy Poems (Six Gallery Press, 2012) and Olympic Butter Gold, which won the 2014 Cave Canem Northwestern University Press Poetry Prize.  Moody lives in Fresno, Texas, with his wife and son and teaches English at Pearland High School.
