Now in its eighth year, M.A.R.S. is designed to engage and expose students to contemporary literature. Since the series launched in 2010, it has brought several notable writers to campus for readings and book signings, including Pulitzer Prize winners Junot Díaz, Jennifer Egan, Claudia Emerson and Adam Johnson.
In this event, Manhattan College presents:
Eye is the author of Seed, chosen by award-winning poet Eduardo C. Corral for the Hilary Tham Capital Collection. His chapbook, Rain Leaping Up When a Cab Goes Past, was published in 2013 in the Editor’s Series at Seven Kitchens Press, and his poems and prose have appeared in a variety of journals and anthologies. Eye received a 2017 Walter E. Dakin Fellowship in Poetry and a 2014 Tennessee Williams Scholarship in Poetry from the Sewanee Writers’ Conference. Before moving to New York to perform in television and theater, he spent four years in Texas in the United States Army. Eye was a visiting assistant professor of creative writing at Manhattan College from 2010-13 and was part of the faculty team that developed the Major Author Reading Series.
M.A.R.S. is co-sponsored by the College’s English department and the School of Liberal Arts.
