CONVO: Affrilachian Poetry Celebration & Workshop
Date(s) - 03/26/2018
Crounse Hall - Vahlkamp Theatre
Affrilachian Poetry Celebration and Workshop
As part of the Creative Commons series, Centre will host several Affrilachian poets, to include Frank X Walker and Dorian Hairston among others, as they present an evening of poetry on the theme of “Identity and Place.” Each poet will read from a body of work and engage questions from the audience, while also discussing process and form. All faculty, staff, student, and community participants will then have the opportunity to work directly with these celebrated poets to develop their own poetry on “Identity and Place.” In the weeks prior to the event, the library will gather student feedback regarding the theme of “Identity and Place” via a large whiteboard posted at the front entrance of the library. Campus responses will be shared at the exhibition on March 26 as well as via large displays in the Vahlkamp Theatre. The week after the workshop, event participants are invited to gather and present their own poetry in the library for a public reading that will also be marketed to the community.
FREE — OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
