It is shaping up to be a highly prolific spring in the world of writing, poetry and readings for Department of English Adjunct Lecturer Rebecca Cuthbert.

In early March, Ms. Cuthbert’s “In Memory of Exoskeletons,” a collection of dark and feminist poetry, was published by Alien Buddha Press and is currently ranked as the publisher’s best seller of 2023 so far.

Cuthbert, who has an M.F.A. in Fiction from West Virginia University, gave a reading from “In Memory of Exoskeletons” and conducted a short question/answer session on WANA LIVE!, a YouTube show produced by the Writers Association of Northern Appalachia.
