Frequency North “Frequency North,” the visiting writers reading series at The College of Saint Rose, returns for its third season with another aggressively eclectic mix of award-winning poets, authors, essayists, and one comedian/playwright/actor/bartender.

Spring will bring readings by poet Gregory Pardlo, the first writer of color to win the American Poetry Review/Honickman Prize; author Darcey Steinke; Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz, founder and host of a three-time National Poetry Slam Championship venue in New York; and Shappy Seasholtz, slam poet, playwright, comedian, actor and head bartender at New York’s Bowery Poetry Club.
