Join us Tuesday, June 21st at 6 pm for THE WAVES Reading series featuring Arden Eli Hill with Khira Hickbottom and Ezra Adamo.
THE WAVES is a reading series for LGBTIQ writers in New Orleans.
Despite being from Louisiana, Arden Eli Hill has never wrestled an alligator, only a kangaroo. Arden holds a Ph.D. in Creative Writing from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a Specialization in Women and Gender Studies and an MFA from Hollins University. Arden is currently a reader for Prairie Schooner and has served as an Assistant Editor for poetry. In case you are still thinking about the kangaroo, Arden won.
Khira Hickbottom is a rising senior Newcomb Scholar at Tulane University studying English Literature and Africana Studies. When she’s not writing, she’s befriending cats on the street, picnicing with friends, or watching the sunset from her porch.
Ezra Adamo is from New Orleans; he was a runner-up in the 2021 Saints and Sinners poetry contest and a finalist in the 2022 contest. He’s currently working on a longer project.
