Join us in celebrating the launch of Dalton Day’s first full-length poetry collection, "Actual Cloud." Dalton will be joined on our stage by Malvern favorites Layne Ransom and Sam Sax.

Dalton Day is a trembling, literal dog-person, Pushcart nominee, & MFA candidate in The New Writers Project at UT Austin. He is the author of the poetry collection Actual Cloud, as well as the chapbooks FAKE KNIFE and the forthcoming To Breathe I’m Too Thin. His poems have been featured in PANK, Hobart, Columbia Poetry Review & Alien Mouth, among others. Currently, he is an editor for FreezeRay Poetry & Souvenir Lit.

Layne Ransom continues to exist. She has an online chapbook out on H_NGM_N and is a poetry MFA candidate in the New Writers Project. She is an aspiring moon princess and loves Sting’s solo career. Those are probably related somehow.

Sam Sax is an NEA Fellow and a Fellow at The Michener Center for Writers where he’s the associate poetry editor at Bat City Review. He’s the two time Bay Area Unified Grand Slam Champion and author of the chapbooks, A Guide to Undressing Your Monsters (Button Poetry 2014) and sad boy / detective (Winner of the Black Lawrence’s 2014 Black River Chapbook Prize).
