Prize-winning poet celebrates his second book in conversation with three other poets

This event will be streamed on our Crowdcast channel.

 

About The Complete Stories
The Complete Stories announces its desire and its lie in the title; this is a book of shatter and loss. In his second collection, Noah Warren—previously selected by Carl Phillips for the Yale Series of Younger Poets—unravels histories both personal and public, picking apart their ugliness, beauty, and irreducible singularity. Clothed in broken forms, these poems of grieving and tentative joy ask finally how we can go forward with our own mottled pasts, into the futures we can’t predict but for which we must bear responsibility.

 

Noah Warren was born in Canada and is the author of The Destroyer in the Glass (2016), chosen by Carl Phillips for the Yale Series of Younger Poets. A former Wallace Stegner Fellow, he is pursuing a PhD in English at UC Berkeley. He lives in Oakland. His poems appear in The Paris Review, Poetry, ZYZZYVA, PEN America, New England Review, Narrative, The Southern Review, AGNI, Poets.org, The Sewanee Review, and elsewhere.

Armen Davoudian is the author of Swan Song, which won the 2020 Frost Place Chapbook Competition. His poems and translations from Persian appear in AGNI, The Sewanee Review, The Yale Review, and elsewhere. He grew up in Isfahan, Iran and is currently a PhD candidate in English at Stanford University.

Randall Mann is the author of four collections of poetry, Proprietary, Straight Razor, Breakfast with Thom Gunn, and Complaint in the Garden. He lives in San Francisco.

Katie Peterson is the author of four previous collections of poetry, including A Piece of Good News. Her poetry has been published in the Journal of Alta California, Literary Imagination, and Poetry Northwest, among others. She is professor and Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of California, Davis, where she directs the MFA program in creative writing. She lives in Berkeley with her husband and their daughter.
