    Pie 2016: Celebrating Kentucky's Student Poets

    This past Sunday we celebrated two of our absolute favorite things: poets and pie. Every year we hold a party to celebrate the exceptional work of our Flo Gault Poetry Prize winners, the finest student poets that Kentucky has to offer. And what better way to celebrate Kentucky than with a couple derby pies—and some cherry pies and apple pies and ice cream pies and shepherd's pies and pizza pies. A big thanks to all the local businessesHeine Bros, Bristol, Wiltshire, Molly Malone's, Plehn's, Whole Foods—who donated the delicious pies and other refreshments to made this event possible. 


    In addition to the much-deserved pie-eating, the other central event of the party is a poetry reading by the contest's winners and honorable mentions. This year we had readings by Natalie Margarite Rickman and Kalyn Johnson from Western Kentucky University, Clare Hagan from Bellarmine University, and Hannah Rego from University of Louisville. Hannah Rego, who won first prize for her poem "Hanging Out," received a letterpress broadside of her poem printed by Hound Dog Press. She was also able to meet Sarabande poet Kiki Petrosino, whom she claimed as a huge influence on her own writing. 

    In case you missed it, you can see the photo galleries of this and past years' Pie Parties on our website. Hope to see you next spring!
