Living Writers Series Fall 2018: “Sentence & Sentience: Forms”

This series features seven contemporary poets, critics, and artists who each render, albeit in differing forms and across a diversity of experiences, the unit of the sentence for powerfully sentient effects. Whether through poetic argument, the fictive line, or the scholarly imagination, each of these authors explore questions of race, gender, sexuality, nature, and nation in their respective practices and forms.

*Note: All Readings, except for the Morton Marcus Reading, featuring Gary Snyder, will take place from 5:20-6:55 in the Humanities Lecture Hall on the dates listed below.  The Gary Snyder Morton Marcus Memorial Poetry Reading will be held in the Music Recital Hall on November 15th from 6-8:00 PM.


All events are free and open to the public.
