Four guest authors will be featured in public events as part of Salve Regina University’s exclusive creative writing degree program, The Newport MFA. While on campus, each author will host a public reading from their best-selling works. Didi Jackson is the author of the debut poetry collection "Moon Jar." Her poems appear in "The New Yorker," "New England Review," "Ploughshares," "Poem-a-Day," "Iowa Review," "The Slowdown," and elsewhere. She currently lives in South Burlington, Vermont and teaches creative writing at the University of Vermont. A book signing will follow the reading. Books will be available for sale at the event.
