The Hugely Popular Series Presents:
Jenn McCreary
Orchid Tierney
Amanda Silberling

Jenn McCreary is a Philadelphia poet. She serves as president of the board of directors for Small Press Traffic, a San Francisco-based nonprofit arts organization whose mission is to provide a local and national platform for experimental writing. She is also the author of three books of poetry, several chapbooks, and in 2013 was named a Pew Fellow in the Arts.

Orchid Tierney is from New Zealand-Aotearoa, currently residing in Philadelphia. Her chapbooks include Brachiation (Dunedin: GumTree Press, 2012) and The World in Small Parts (Chicago: Dancing Girl Press, 2012), and a full length sound translation of the Book of Margery Kempe, Earsay (TrollThread, 2016). Other work has appeared in Bathhouse Journal, Pacific Literary Review, Empty Mirror and elsewhere. She co-edits Supplement, an annual anthology on Philadelphia writing.

Amanda Silberling will graduate from the University of Pennsylvania this spring and is generally nervous about that. An interdisciplinary text-based artist, her poems and not-poems have appeared in The Rumpus, Paper Magazine, Consequence of Sound, Reality Beach, decomP, and others. Her first film "We're Here, We're Present: Women in Punk" debuted this summer on VICE. For more info, visit
