New Writing Series: Victoria Hood and Lily Rain

October 27, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

| Free

The UMaine New Writing Series will feature Victoria Hood and Lily Rain, alumnae of the University of Maine’s English Department. The event will be held live in the Fernald APPE Space (Stewart Commons 104) starting at 4:30pm on October 27, 2022. Gregory Howard will introduce Victoria Hood and Hollie Adams will introduce Lily Rain.

Victoria Hood strives to create work that can meld together the punk roots her parents raised her in with the disillusionment of losing her mother at a young age. Through her writing she hopes to discomfort, humor, and charm. She holds an MA in English from the University of Maine and is the author of the chapbooks Death and Darlings and I am My Mother’s Disappointments. Her collection of short stories, My Haunted Home, the winner of FC2’s Ronald Sukenick Innovative Fiction Prize, was recently published by FC2.

Lily Rain graduated from the University of Maine in 2022 with a double major in English and Psychology, having been named the English Department’s Outstanding Graduating Senior. She also served as the poetry editor of The Open Field undergraduate literary journal. Her poetry chapbook, not a cry for help, just a crying out was published by Bottlecap Press in 2022. You can read more of her poetry on instagram: @lilyrainpoetry.
