We are happy to welcome Jess Arndt to the kick-off to our new event series featuring queer writers. Arndt is the author of Large Animals: Stories, which Maggie Nelson deemed "wildly original, even as it joins in with the classics of loaded, outlaw literature." Arndt earned an MFA at Bard and was a 2013 Graywolf SLS Fellow and 2010 Fiction Fellow at the New York Foundation of the Arts. Arndt has written for Fence, BOMB, Aufgabe, and the art journal Parkett, among others, is a co-founder of New Herring Press, and lives in Los Angeles.
Jess Arndt will conduct an advanced craft workshop from 5 to 6 PM, discussing topics of craft and approaches to writing, and then will give a reading of their work from 6 to 7 PM. A Rutgers faculty member will host. Please invite your students, friends, and family. All are welcome.
