Charlene Fix, the chair of the English and philosophy departments at CCAD, will share her poetry with central Ohio.
Fix will be a featured reader in Paging Columbus: Under the Influence at the OSU Urban Arts Space.
Paging Columbus is a literary arts-themed event series with a local focus. It takes place once a month in the evenings and features readings and panel discussions.
The October installment, on Oct. 6 from 6-8 p.m., will feature three individuals, including Fix, and will have the individual readers discuss their mentors, teachers, and gurus.
Fix also recently participated in the House of Toast poetry group performance at Beehive Books in Delaware, Ohio.
The House of Toast is a group of central Ohio poets founded in 1995 as a way to support the member’s poetry and since then has become a group that does various performances and readings at local venues.
Fix’s poems have appeared in numerous publications, including Poetry, The Ohio Review, The Chicago Review, The Manhattan Review, and Negative Capability.
She has received fellowships for her poetry from both the Greater Columbus Arts Council and the Ohio Arts Council, and won the Robert H. Winner Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America.
She has published a chapbook of poems, Mischief (Pudding House Publications), and a poetry collection, Flowering Bruno: A Dography, a finalist for the Ohioana Book Award in Poetry (XOXOX Press).
