From the perspectives of archivist, curator, editor, scholar and translator, a diverse group of poets - Catherine Bowman, Nancy Kuhl, Geoffrey O’Brien, Nathalie Stephens and Kevin Young - explores the vital role of the library in poetic creation and preservation.
This panel is for registered attendees of the AWP Conference.
In this talk, award-winning poet Vijay Seshadri examines the origins and scope of Elizabeth Bishop’s visionary poetry, her paradoxical relationship to the religious traditions that shaped her thought, and her ability to expose the fundamental questions underlying human experience.
Barbez, a critically-acclaimed "ethno-punk-cabaret" ensemble, performs Force of Light, a multimedia event that interweaves the poetry of Paul Celan with music and video. The songs have been recorded as part of the Radical Jewish Culture series on John Zorn's Tzadik label. Experimental poet, playwright and performance artist Fiona Templeton will narrate.
In this diorama-making workshop, hosted by writer and artist Carin Berger, we’ll build marvelous miniature worlds using plastic boxes and plenty of fun ephemera. We’ll then fill our dreamscapes with poetry to make them truly come alive.
Carin Berger is the author and illustrator of award-winning children's books including A Perfect Day and The Little Yellow Leaf.
Spinner of such classics as “The Tell-Tale Heart” and “The Raven,” Edgar Allan Poe’s work delightfully frightens even today. We’ll learn all about his life and work in the 1800s and re-tell some of his most famous tales and poems. Finally, using some very dark (arts and crafts) materials, we’ll create our own sinister ravens.
