Interesting things happen when you bring two writers together, which is why every quarter Artists of Utah, in conjunction with Salt Lake City Arts Council, brings two Utah writers together for a reading and discussion. On Thursday, April 11, READ LOCAL featured poets Trish Hopkinson and Jennifer Tonge. Hopkinson’s poems have been published in Tinderbox, The Penn Review, and elsewhere. Her third chapbook Footnote was published by Lithic Press in 2017. She is co-founder of Rock Canyon Poets and Editor-in-Chief of the group’s annual
anthology, Orogeny. Tonge’s poems have appeared in numerous journals, including the New England Review. Most recently, her work has appeared as part of the Visible Poetry Project and been featured on Zoetic Press’s podcast The Literary Whip.
