You Are Here: Poems of Place with KC Trommer

Oct 5, 2019 | 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm


What do time and place have to teach us? This generative workshop aims to use participants’ personal geographies—inherited as well as chosen—to create work that examines one’s own place in the world. Class discussion will consider modern and contemporary poets—including W. S. Merwin, Frank O’Hara, Heather McHugh, Joy Harjo, Rosebud Ben-Oni, and others—to learn from these poets’ visual and narrative mapping.


KC Trommer is the author of We Call Them Beautiful (2019) and the chapbook The Hasp Tongue (2014). Her poems have appeared in AGNI, The Antioch Review, Blackbird, The Common, Diode, LitHub, The Sycamore Review, Poetry Daily, Prairie Schooner, and Poetry East, as well as in several anthologies. Her essays have appeared in VIDA Review, LitHub, and elsewhere. She has been awarded grants and fellowships from the Queens Council on the Arts, the Table 4 Writers Foundation, the Center for Book Arts, the Vermont Studio Center, the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and the Prague Summer Program. She has taught writing at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; Bard High School Early College, Queens; and the University of Pennsylvania.
