Inner Moonlight is the monthly poetry series for the Wild Detectives! Our show is the second Wednesday of every month. Meet us in the backyard at 7:30pm on Wednesday February 14th for a very special Valentine’s Day poetry reading! Brief open mic to follow. Don’t worry, podcast fans! We will record the live show and release it as a podcast episode for y’all. This month, we are proud to present Inner Moonlight favorite Emma Ramsey!
Emma Pearl Ramsey grew up on a small farm in the Piney Woods of East Texas. She earned her BFA from Stephen F. Austin State University, and her MFA from North Carolina State University, and currently teaches in the English Department at TCU. Emma left her country life behind, but its influence continues to surface in her work and life. Through images of gardens, flowers, and the natural world, Emma’s poems explore themes of family, loss, and coming-of age. Emma’s work has appeared in Blue Route, she was a finalist in the NCSU Annual Poetry Contest, and she was nominated for a Best New Poets award. She is at work on her first full length collection.
“Follow your inner moonlight, don’t hide the madness.”
—Allen Ginsberg, from On Being a Writer
