About the Session
How do our identities intersect with our writing? How do the concepts of identity manifest themselves in poetry? How does the page represent both the art, itself, and the artist? How does the writing of identity intersect with the political and cultural? What are the interconnections between the technical elements of poetry in consideration with identity? Three award-winning poets, editors, and social change agents will discuss the complexities the concepts of identity play in poetry and how the forms and images used may set tones and scaffolding for the artistic work in personal, cultural, and societal contexts.
