The University of Illinois Springfield Shelterbelt Reading Series and ECCE Speaker Series present poet Eloisa Amezcua!

Eloisa Amezcua, recipient of the 2017 Shelterbelt Poetry Prize, will read on Thursday, April 19 at 7:30 p.m. in the Brookens Auditorium. This event is FREE and open to the public.

Amezcua will read poetry examining issues of identity, culture, the feminine body, and migration/immigration. She will investigate how we can engage with each other in an empathetic, socially responsible way when separated by language, geography, and generational difference.

Eloisa Amezcua's debut collection, From the Inside Quietly, is the inaugural winner of the Shelterbelt Poetry Prize selected by Ada Limón. She is the author of three chapbooks, including Mexicameriana and On Not Screaming, and is the founder and editor of The Shallow Ends: A Journal of Poetry. She holds an MFA from Emerson College in Boston and has received fellowships and scholarships from the MacDowell Colony, the Fine Arts Work Center, and the Bread Loaf Translators' Conference, among others.

The Shelterbelt Reading Series is sponsored by the University of Illinois Springfield College of Arts and Sciences and by the UIS English Department. Many thanks to UIS ECCE Speaker Series for partnering with us on this event.
