The Kellogg Writers Series brings writers of distinction to the University of Indianapolis campus for classroom discussions and free public readings.

Maggie Graber is a queer millennial poet from the Great Lakes. She is a Luminarts Cultural Foundation Fellow, a graduate of the MFA in creative writing program at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and formerly a certified Wilderness First Responder. Her work has appeared in BOAAT, the Louisville Review, the Adroit Journal, and elsewhere. She currently serves as poetry editor for Yalobusha Review and lives in Oxford, Mississippi, where she is a PhD student at the University of Mississippi. “Maggie Graber’s 

Swan Hammer is the kind of wild, hungry, ebullient, insolent, playful, sorrow-struck, yawping book of poems you did not know you needed until you notice the heap of rust at your feet knocked from the hinges on the door to your heart. And your heart peeking out and opening its mouth to sing along, and sing along, with Graber’s beautiful song.”
