The Telluride Institute’s Talking Gourds Poetry Club is proud to host Jennifer Rane Hancock, a regional poet who teaches creative writing at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, on Tuesday night, March 27th, starting at 6 p.m. at the Telluride Arts offices.
 
Hancock facilitates the Poetry Night gathering at Mesa County Public Library on the second Wednesday of each month. Her poems have recently appeared in Fruita Pulp and Crab Orchard Review. This fall semester, her Craft of Poetry Class will be working with students from the design and printmaking classes to produce poetry broadsides. 
 
Jennifer Rane Hancock received her MFA from Sarah Lawrence College, and her Ph.D. from Oklahoma State University. She is currently Assistant Professor of English at Colorado Mesa University, and her first collection, Between Hurricanes, was recently published by Lithic Press.
 
Her work has also appeared in Ecotone, Crab Orchard Poetry Review, and Puerto del Sol, among other journals. She occasionally forays on the Grand Mesa, where sadly someone else has found her chanterelle field.
 
The reading begins at 6 p.m. on Tuesday March. 27th at the Telluride Arts Gallery Office, 135 West Pacific, across the street from the Wilkinson Library entrance.
 
Poetry Club announcements are followed by the featured performance. Then, following a short break, the gourd is passed and everyone has a chance to read a poem or two (their own, or one from a favorite poet) that speaks to the theme for March – “Play.”
