WRITER IN RESIDENCE


Wolverine Farm Publishing and Wolverine Farm Publick House strive to be valuable resources for local writers of all genres. In order to better serve the writing community and encourage individual authors and poets to interact with one another and build a strong network, we present the Writer in Residence (WIR) program. Every three months we select a local writer who agrees to be present and in good writing form at the Publick House throughout the term, and to perform a free, public, in-house reading or workshop in collaboration with our other monthly residents.


2024 Writers in Residence

SPRING (April-June) Cookie B Egret

cookie b egret, born and raised in the Fort Collins area is performing at becoming with other others more capaciously, as a matter of habit building differently. Writing, parenting, performing arts and double-libra-ness structures most of their space-time selfing. Serving rhetorical-based writing instruction topped with shaved bits of postmodern zest and cross-cultural analysis is another practice cookie engages in on the regular. Currently, they’re finishing up a few years of research attempting to reframe the operationalizability of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in synthetic genomics and bioengineering. They’re working on a paper, conference presentation and poetry to these regards. Can new life find us? (What is “new,” what is “us” what counts as alive?) What will that encounter look, sound, or feel like? How will we open to understanding?

Find cookie at the Publick House throughout the season and at the Residency Showcase after summer Solstice.
