Carissa Halston is your host.

Carissa Halston has written a couple books, is working on a couple more, edits a literary journal (apt), runs a small press (Aforementioned Productions), hosts and curates a reading series (Literary Firsts), and is currently teaching undergraduates about rhetoric and composition. She’s been a prose editor at AGNI, and the recipient of grants and awards from the Wesleyan Writers Conference, UMass Boston, San Francisco State University, The New York Book Festival, and a few other places. She’s generally a fiction writer, but she’ll be reading non-fiction this time around. She loves you just for showing up. Honest.

Carissa is the confessional reader for the January 20 reading.
