Kieran Collier is a Boston-based writer and educator. He is the author of When the Gardener Has Left (Wilde Press, 2015) and This to You (Beard Poetry, 2016). His work has been featured in multiple journals and anthologies. He was the first (and so far the only) four-time CUPSI member of Emerson College’s existence, and has since graduated to co-hosting at the Boston Poetry Slam. His favorite color is orange. Talk to him about pop punk and the perfect Shirley Temple.
Kieran will conduct a poetry writing workshop prior to door time on the night of his feature. More details will be available here in early spring.
