The Fall 2020 Visiting Writers Series continues on Thursday, September 24, with poet Joan Naviyuk Kane, who will meet with students in an afternoon workshop and then participate in an evening event at 7 p.m. The evening reading and conversation, facilitated by MFA student Ana Pugatch and BFA alum Eli Vandegrift, will take place on Crowdcast and is open to the public.
Kane has authored seven books and chapbooks of poetry and prose, most recently Another Bright Departure. Other collections include The Cormorant Hunter’s Wife; Hyperboreal; The Straits; Milk Black Carbon; A Few Lines in the Manifest; and Sublingual. Her artistic interests concern the role of lyric and story whose urgency and vitality is carried forward into the present and future by contemporary indigenous writers. Kane has received a 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship, a 2014 American Book Award, the 2012 Donald Hall Prize for Poetry, and a 2009 Whiting Award.
The Visiting Writers Series is co-presented by Mason's Creative Writing Program and Mason Libraries, with additional support from Fall for the Book.
The event will be live-streamed below and can also be accessed through Fall for the Book's Crowdcast site as well.
