Maggie Cleveland’s ATOM FISH Chapbook Release Reading

ImageGallery X and One Time Press are proud to present the release of Maggie Cleveland’s poetry chapbook, ATOM FISH. A book release reading and party will be held at Gallery X (169 William St. New Bedford, MA) on Saturday, November 17th from 1:00 – 4:00 PM. Maggie will be our featured reader, with guest readers from all corners of New England. There will be an open mic, and attendees will be encouraged to present their poetry.

Hailing from the seacoast town of Fairhaven, Massachusetts, Maggie Cleveland lives with cats, children, and a science fiction writer, and works developing courses for the National Elevator Industry. She’s coordinated poetry readings and events in southeastern Massachusetts for more than 15 years. Her poems have been published in journals including The Offending Adam, Imageqarrtsiluni, the Newport Review, Elephant, Flying Fish, BURP, Out of Our, Amerarcana: A Bird & Beckett Review, and many others. Her work was recently translated into Albanian for publication in the anthology Tingujt e erës:Lirikë e re Amerikane (Sounds of Wind: New American Lyrics). She received an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College in 2011.

ATOM FISH is one long, odd poem that attempts to realize / redefine one’s place in life through relationships to personal, familial, and place history. Characters on the periphery of a dream state (“Adam Fish” and “Atom Fish”) observe and guide the narrator through a storied past, a jumbled, imperfect present, and a future imbued with love and weirdness.

Light refreshments will be served.
