Scott Woods is the author of Urban Contemporary History Month (2016, Brick Cave Books) and We Over Here Now (2013, Brick Cave Books) and has published and edited work
in a variety of publications. His blog, Scott Woods Makes Lists, has been nationally recognized, and he has been featured multiple times in national press, including multiple appearances on National Public Radio. He was the President of Poetry Slam, Inc. and emcees the Writers’ Block Poetry Night, a weekly open mic series in Columbus, Ohio. Woods has organized and featured in numerous multi-disciplinary presentations, most recently premiering new work at the 2016 show, A Bad Peace, alongside drummer/composer Dr. Mark Lomax II. Woods has a forthcoming book of essays slated for release in 2017. In April of 2006 he became the first poet to ever complete a 24-hour solo poetry reading, a feat he bested with seven more annual 24-hour readings without repeating a single poem.

On Thursday March 30, Scott Woods will premiere a new long-form work commissioned specifically for the Holler series, as well as other work. A short Q&A will follow.
