Our second season, “Online Poetry: The Refuge of Witnessing” will provide a weekly poetry sanctuary to hear moving words, deepen our exploration of their meaning, and connect with each other. Join us each Thursday from 12:00 to 1:00 pm. It will be your port in a worldly storm.
This week’s poet will feature Holly Iglesias, author of three collections of poetry— Sleeping Things; Angles of Approach; and Souvenirs of a Shrunken World—as well as a critical work, Boxing Inside the Box: Women’s Prose Poetry. Her most recent publication is a collaborative chapbook, Myth America (Anhinga Press), co-written with Maureen Seaton, Carolina Hospital and Nicole Hospital-Medina. Holly has been awarded fellowships by the National Endowment for the Arts, the North Carolina Arts Council, the Edward Albee Foundation, and the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and her teaching has focused on documentary poetry. Her current project is an intergenerational memoir in prose fragments with the working title Theories of Flight.
