WAM October 8-9 Amanda Jernigan & Mark Callanan
Amanda Jernigan, a poet once resident in St. John’s, launches her first collection of poetry, Groundwork, influenced by classic myth and by the Atlantic Ocean outside our port.
Mark Callanan, a good friend of Amanda’s, is ready to see his new collection, Gift Horse, influenced by a near-death experience with disease, in your hands.
Both poets will present their new work to you on Tuesday night in St. John’s.
I asked Amanda to describe Groundwork, which is a play, many times over, on words.
