Inprint is proud to serve as the host for the First Fridays Reading Series. The First Fridays Reading Series is the oldest poetry series in Houston and was organized by Robert Clark from 1975-2019. Today, First Fridays are curated and hosted by local community members.

On September 1, First Friday presents Maha Abdel Wahab. Winner of the Inprint Donald Barthelme Prize in Poetry, Maha is an Egyptian poet and translator. She holds an MFA in Poetry from the University of Oregon and is PhD candidate and Inprint Nina and Michael Zilkha Fellow at UH specializing in Empire Studies. Her poetry and reviews have appeared or are forthcoming in Grist, The Adroit Journal, The Recluse, and elsewhere. She is poetry editor for the Beirut-based literary magazine Rusted Radishes and the online nonfiction editor at Gulf Coast.
