  • Michigan Writers Cooperative Press — Chapbook Contest Winner Michigan Writers Cooperative Press is pleased to announce the winner of our annual chapbook contest. This year we will be publishing one new author, Megan Klco Kellner and her poetry chapbook, "What Will You Teach Her?" Megan’s book will be released at a celebratory reading and reception on Sunday, June 9, 2019 at 7pm. We invite the public to join us for this free event at the Writing House on the campus of the Interlochen Center for the Arts. Mark your calendars to help us celebrate Megan’s work. Megan Klco Kellner writes poems and makes paintings in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She holds an MFA in painting from Kendall College of Art and Design. She started writing poems in earnest during late-night feedings after her children were born. She is, above all, their awe-filled observer. "What Will You Teach Her?" was selected by poetry judge Casey Thayer, author of the full-length poetry collection, "Self Portrait with Spurs and Sulfur" (University of New Mexico Press, 2015). Thayer was a Wallace Stegner fellow at Stanford University and has been a fellow at the Sewanee Writers' Conference. He has published work in American Poetry Review, North American Review, Poetry, and elsewhere. Currently, he lives in Chicago and works at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
