Poetry Night: Leslie Schultz
Join us for this month's installment in Content's series of monthly poetry readings. In May we feature Leslie Schultz, who will read from her own work, and invite others to share a poem of their own.
In 2016, Leslie Schultz’s collection of poems, Still Life with Poppies: Elegies, was published by Kelsay Books, and she’ll publish a poem, first read at Content Bookstore, in Light (a journal of light verse). She has published poetry, fiction, and essays in a variety of journals and anthologies, including Able Muse, Mezzo Cammin; Swamp Lily; Poetic Strokes Anthology; The Pacific Review; The Northern Review; The Madison Review, The Mid-American Poetry Review; The Midwest Quarterly; Stone Country; Sun Dog; The Wayfarer, Third Wednesday, and in a chapbook, Living Room (Midwestern Writers’ Publishing House). Three of her poems are stamped into Northfield's city pavements, and in 2013 one of her haiku was included in the payload of NASA’s MAVEN mission and is currently orbiting the red planet. Schultz has also published two middle-grade novels featuring main characters who are homeschooled with Do Life Right Press: The Howling Vowels (2011) and And Sometimes Y (2013). Schultz posts poems, essays, reviews, interviews, and photographs at www.winonamedia.net.
