It’s the premiere of Janet Wondra’s Bad Attitude, a collection of her recent poetry.
Janet has spread her mischief from her home state of California through Louisiana, Georgia, and into Chicago. Her poetry is collected in three volumes—Emerging Island Cultures, The Wandering Mother, and Long Division—and has been published in such journals as The Southern Review, Witness, Michigan Quarterly Review, Connecticut Review, and Exquisite Corpse. Her creative nonfiction has appeared in Short Takes: Brief Encounters with Contemporary Nonfiction and In the Middle of the Middle West: Literary Nonfiction from the Heartland as well as in The Christian Science Monitor, Denver Quarterly, and Bellingham Review. Also an experimental filmmaker, she has screened her work at festivals and art museums from Germany to California. She teaches creative writing and American literature at Roosevelt University, Chicago.
