2nd Year MFA Reading

Location: Geddes Hall Auditorium

1st Mfa Reading Revised

Erik Fuhrer is interested in literary boundary crossings, manifested most recently in representations of the nonhuman and transgressions between human and nonhuman subjects in modernist literature. He is inspired by hybrid forms of literary expression that elide genre boundaries as well as by quiet, lyric poetry that often achieves the same transgressions more subtly.

His work has previously appeared in The Long Island Quarterly, First Literary Review East, The Fib Review, The Shotglass Journal
