March 4, 2021 - King’s College will welcome author Brenda Miller in March as one of two Visiting Writers for the 2020-2021 academic year as part of an annual program sponsored by the College’s English Department. As part of her virtual residency, Miller will work with King’s students in conjunction with the Creative Nonfiction Writing Workshop in an online learning environment. Miller will also hold a free, virtual reading of her work that will be open to the public and conducted over Zoom on Thursday, March 25, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. The reading will be followed by a Q&A session.

An essayist and poet, Miller is the author of five essay collections, most recently An Earlier Life. She is the recipient of six Pushcart Prizes, and also serves as a professor of English at Western Washington University and associate faculty at the Rainier Writing Workshop. Miller also co-authored Tell It Slant: Creating, Refining and Publishing Creative Nonfiction (Third Edition 2019) and The Pen and The Bell: Mindful Writing in a Busy World. Her poetry chapbook, The Daughters of Elderly Women, received the 2020 Floating Bridge Press Chapbook Award. Her work has been described as "delicate, elegant, and occasionally devastating" by American essayist John D'Agata.
