Judith Serin reads new stories from “Gravity”
joined by poet Zack Rogow
reading new poems from “Irreverent Litanies”

click here for an interview with Judith Serin on the publication of her short story collection, Gravity (Eyewear Publishing, 2022)

Judith Serin’s Gravity, a collection of short stories and the title novella, has just been brought out by Eyewear Publishing.  Her collection of poetry, Hiding in the World, was published by Diane di Prima’s Eidolon Editions, and her Days Without (Sky): A Poem Tarot, seventy-eight short prose poems in the form of a tarot deck with illustration and book art design by Nikki Thompson, was published by Deconstructed Artichoke Press.

Judith writes fiction and creative nonfiction as well as poetry, and her work has appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies. She teaches literature and writing at California College of the Arts. www.judithserin.com

“In stories that are ethereal and haunting, Judith Serin portrays
the inner world of women who confront their desires and constraints.
Imaginative, captivating, sensual, and fierce, Gravity invites you to know yourself
as well as Serin knows her characters.”
— Julie Lythcott-Haim
