The Readers (and a Musical Guest) for the Fourteen Hills 18.1 Release Party
Fourteen Hills is thrilled to introduce you to the writers who will be reading at one of San Francisco’s finest literary events: The Fourteen Hills 18.1 Release Party!

D. A. Powell was born in Albany, Georgia on May 16, 1963 and graduated from Lindhurst High School in Linda, CA. He received his MA from Sonoma State University in 1993 and his M.F.A. from the Iowa Writer’s Workshop in 1996. He now teaches at University of San Francisco in the English Department and edits the online magazine Electronic Poetry Review. He has served as the Briggs-Copeland Lecturer in Poetry at Harvard University and taught at other universities.
Pocket Shelley is our musical guest for the evening. Pocket Shelley is the project of Michael C. Mullen, a San Francisco songwriter who has also played and written for The Size Queens (along with novelist and Fourteen Hills 18.1 contributor Adam Klein), Glasstown and Roman Evening. Taking a page from the works of poet Percy Shelley, Pocket Shelley aims to "weave strange webs of melancholy mirth" with his music, creating heartfelt, open songs with a mordant streak. We gaurantee you will be thrilled by the literary innuendos peppered throughout the lyrics.
