Poetry of Fiction

2:00pm EST

Fiction / Poetry

Even in prose, some narratives are best expressed through the rhythms and techniques of poetry. Through precise and artful language, these innovative and observant poets and authors explore the nature of time, the experience of consciousness, and the aftermath of history. Join award-winning poet Carolyn Forché (In the Lateness of the World), Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa (The Chameleon Couch), and critically acclaimed novelist Kate Zambreno (Drifts) for a discussion of their creative work. Moderated by Pitchaya Sudbanthad, author of Bangkok Wakes to Rain.
