A Salute to Mary Jo Firth Gillett
Friday, September 14, 7PM
Mary Jo Firth Gillett has long been the Advanced Poetry Workshop instructor for Springfed Arts. She retired this year just in time to become a 2012 Kresge Artist Fellow. We congratulate her and thank her for fostering so many poets and poems.

Her poems have appeared in The Harvard Review, Michigan Quarterly Review, The Southern Review, Gettysburg Review, Third Coast and Green Mountains Review, among other journals. She has won the NY Open Voice Award, a Creative Artist Grant from ArtServe Michigan, and several Pushcart Prize nominations.
