APRIL Festival Fireside Chat

  Save Event

This Fireside Chat featuring a lecture and Q&A with poet Cedar Sigo, is part of the APRIL Festival, which celebrates the work of independent publishers by organizing innovative, substantive, and boozy book events that you actually want to attend. Rich Smith says:

I once wrote of Sigo:

"He reads with a calm, quiet confidence that encourages you to close your eyes for a second and let language get weird on you. The words operate like painted sound, coloring narratives that read like dreams."

I stand by that. This cozy chat and Q&A, copresented with the Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry, will be more about formal innovation in poetry, and less about painted dream sounds, which will be useful for anyone who's interested in how a poet thinks about building poems, and interesting for those who think that poems aren't built.
