Poetry reading held at University of the Cumberlands


WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. – Marianne Worthington, a University of the Cumberlands associate communication arts professor, read from her new collection of poetry, "Larger Bodies than Mine", Tuesday at the University's Hutton School of Business.

This was the first event of the semester for the university’s women's club, of which Worthington is a member. A reception was held after the reading.

When asked when she finds time to write, Worthington replied that she writes mainly during the summer and on weekends. "I like to write in the morning," she said.

Worthington, a Williamsburg, Kentucky resident, has published poetry and nonfiction in Shenandoah, The Louisville Review, Wind, Natural Bridge, Kalliope, Birmingham Arts Journal, Arts Across Kentucky, Louisville Magazine, Journal of Kentucky Studies, and elsewhere, including the anthologies "A Kentucky Christmas" and "Knoxville Bound." She is also the reviews editor for Now & Then: The Appalachian Magazine.
