Three Brevard College faculty members show that they can do as well as teach when they read from their poetry and fiction Thursday, April 9, at 7 p.m. in the McLarty-Goodson building on the Brevard College campus.

The combined reading, which is free and open to the public, features English professors Kenneth Chamlee, Katherine Scott Crawford, and Jubal Tiner reading from their forthcoming or in-progress works.

“Audiences will be in for a treat, watching these three teachers strut their stuff as writers,” Tiner said. “Brevard College has a wealth of world-class talent, of which these writers are testament.”

Chamlee – who received two Pushcart Prize nominations – will read poems soon to be published in the journal Ekphrasis; Crawford – winner of a North Carolina Arts Award in fiction – will read from her parenting and outdoor life column series in the Greenville News as well as her novel-in-progress, “The Year of Josephine Scott;” and Tiner – winner of an IPPY award for best regional fiction representing the Midwest – will read from his story, “Ursa Major,” which will be published in the Cold Mountain Review.
