Please join the IPRC for the second installment of our Ledger Editions Readings with readings from Stephanie Adams-Santos, Catie Hannigan, and Jennifer Perrine. This event is made possible with support from the Kinsman Foundation.
The work of Stephanie Adams-Santos spans poetry, prose, and screenwriting. Often grappling with themes of strangeness and belonging, her work reflects a fascination with the weird, numinous and primal forces that shape inner life. Stephanie is the author of several full length poetry collections and chapbooks, including DREAM OF XIBALBA (selected by Jericho Brown as winner of the 2021 Orison Poetry Prize) and SWARM QUEEN’S CROWN (finalist for a Lambda Literary Award). Her short story NIGHT FLOWERS appeared in the latinx anthology SPECULATIVE FICTION FOR DREAMERS. Stephanie served as Staff Writer and Story Editor on the television anthology horror series TWO SENTENCE HORROR STORIES (CW/Netflix). Her episode ELLIOT was winner of a 2022 Gold Telly Award in Writing. As an inaugural fellow of the 2022 Ojalá Ignition Fellowship, she developed an original fantasy pilot based on the world and characters of the Tarot. Most recently, Stephanie was a fellow of the 2022 Sundance Episodic Lab, developing an animated dystopian sci-fi/fantasy pilot. In addition to her literary work, Stephanie is a professional Tarot reader and is making headway on an original Major Arcana tarot deck inspired by occult animism.
Catie Hannigan (they/she) is a queer poet and visual artist whose work incorporates poetry, book making, and installation. They are the author of the chapbooks MOON’S CABIN (dancing girl press, 2019), Water Fragments (Tammy Journal, 2017), and What Once Was There Is The Most Beautiful Thing (DIAGRAM, 2015). They have been awarded residencies at In Cahoots Residency, Stelo Arts, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Mineral School, and the Vashon Artist Residency, among others. They currently teach the Poetry Track of the Portfolio Program at the Independent Publishing Resource Center in Portland, OR. More of their work can be found at: www.catiehannigan.com

Machine, In the Human Zoo, and No Confession, No Mass. Perrine’s recent poems,
