We are pleased to host the third VOX Reading Series event at ATHICA (rescheduled becaus of last week's winter weather); these eight writers' original works will compliment ATHICA's current childhood and family-themed exhibit, Nurture: Video and Photography by Amy Jenkins.

The VOX evenings of original prose and poetry readings have been enjoyed immensely at the two similar previous events ATHICA has hosted-Headlines: News-themed Stories and Poems during this fall's Free Press in Free Fall exhibit and Love Lines during last spring's Crafting Romance. Once again VOX organizers Matt Forsythe, Andy Frazee & Ida Stewart have curated a bevy of works; no piece will run longer than ten minutes, and many run shorter. (You can see images from these past events here and here!)

Melisa Cahnmann-Taylor, an Associate Professor in the College of Education, is a poet with over a decade's worth of publications in poetry and academic journals and with two books on arts education under her belt. Local writer Johnny Pence is the former long-time editor of The Blotter literary magazine. Both bring their experiences as parents of young children to the page.

The remaining 6 writers are currently enrolled as MFA and PhD students in UGA's Creative Writing Program, with many distinguished awards and publications among them.
Jeff Fallis and Kyle Garrett appeared in fall's line-up and Patrick Denker read last spring.

VOX is affiliated with the University of Georgia's Creative Writing Dept. The VOX Reading Series serves to bring both emerging and established writers to Athens, as well as to provide a stage for graduate students in the UGA Creative Writing Program. Founded in 2004 as an independently student-run series, VOX held events in venues throughout Athens until 2007, when, with the financial support of the Creative Writing Program, it moved to its current home venue, the Cine art theater.
