Join us in the Levenson Room at Portsmouth Public Library for November’s Hoot, featuring UNH MFA Poets Casey Lynn Roland and Anna Ohara! (Wednesday, Nov. 6th, 7pm-9pm)

Casey Lynn Roland is a second year graduate student at the University of New Hampshire, pursuing an MFA in Poetry. She lives, works, writes, and makes art on the North Shore of Massachusetts, but spends much of her time on Lake Winnipesaukee; her poetry attempts to reconcile her relationships to those places, the people in them, and how they are always changing. Casey’s current obsessions are folklore, trees, and the idea that all time is simultaneous. She also creates blackout poetry, and you can see some of her work on Instagram at @mscaseycreates and at

Anna Ohara is a poet currently in the MFA program at UNH, where she also teaches poetry to undergraduates. She has lived in and around New England for most of the past ten years but the fall still delights and winter still manages to confound her. She is currently working on her thesis which, among other topics, draws on her experience researching family history in Japan.
