Mazza Writers in Residence 2019–2020: Peter Nachtrieb and Wendy Trevino, supported by the Sam Mazza Foundation

The Poetry Center, thanks once again to a generous grant from the Sam Mazza Foundation, is pleased to present San Francisco writers, playwright Peter Nachtrieb and poet Wendy Trevino, as our fourth and fifth Mazza Writers in Residence, respectively, for Fall 2019 and Spring 2020. Each of them, throughout their week-long residency, meet with several classes of students pursuing multiple studies at SF State, present a reading at The Poetry Center, and a second performance at an off-campus site. All public events will be video-documented for on-demand access at Poetry Center Digital Archive, with video highlight clips at YouTube.
