Women's Words on March 3, 2013 featured Kat Mandeville, reading two poems, "Skipping to Middle Chapters for Graphic Description" and "Island Ghazal."
Kat Mandeville studied at Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan, then at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, and now studies philosophy at the European Graduate School in Switzerland. In Duluth she spends her time reading, writing, waiting tables, and occasionally performing.
Her poems have been published with literary journals such as :
Prick of the Spindle, and the Oakland Review. Locally, she is published in the anthology Migrations. A selection of her poems inspired the multi-media exploit ""From the Margins, This, Unmentioned", composed by Bryan Senti, produced by Found Objects Music Productions. It premiered in Brooklyn, New York in 2009 with the MacArthur Dance Project, and then in 2011 with The Nouveau Classical Project .
