Mason Jar Press brings together their authors in a celebration of literature and art. Join the authors of the most recent and upcoming MJP publications—Danny Caine, Nicole Callihan and Jaime Fountaine—for a reading, Q and A, and book signing. Hosted and moderated by fellow MJP author, Justin Sanders.

Originally from North Carolina and raised in Oklahoma, Nicole Callihan writes poems and stories. Her poetry books include SuperLoop and Translucence, a dual-language, cross-culture collaboration with Palestinian poet Samar Abdel Jaber; and the chapbooks: A Study in Spring (co-written with Zoë Ryder White), The Deeply Flawed Human, Downtown, and Aging. A frequent collaborator with artists, actors, and writers, Nicole's work has appeared in Tin House, Sixth Finch, and as a Poem-a-Day selection from the Academy of American Poets. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband and daughters, and is a Senior Language Lecturer in the Expository Writing Program at New York University.
