A unique opportunity to hear diverse and unusual sets of readers, pairing local and out-of-state poets.
Anders Carlson-Wee is the author of The Low Passions, published by W.W. Norton in 2019. His work has appeared in The Paris Review, BuzzFeed, Ploughshares, Virginia Quarterly Review, Poetry Daily, The Sun, Best New Poets, The Best American Nonrequired Reading, and many other publications. The recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the McKnight Foundation, the Camargo Foundation, Bread Loaf, Sewanee, and the Napa Valley Writers’ Conference, he is the winner of the 2017 Poetry International Prize. His work has been translated into Chinese. Anders holds an MFA from Vanderbilt University and lives in Cincinnati.
Kenneth Fields’ collections of poetry include The Other Walker, Sunbelly, Smoke, The Odysseus Manuscripts, Anemographia: A Treatise on the Wind, August Delights, and Classic Rough News. Here’s a quote about Ken from the Stanford Daily: “For more than 50 years, undergraduates and Stegner Fellows have left Stanford better poets, critics, and writers for their time studying with Ken. So many of the best first books of poetry published in the United States today feature Ken’s name on their acknowledgments page. He is the living institutional memory of a program, as well as a teacher and mentor who, to spin an admiring joke, has easily forgotten more about poetry than most of us have ever learned.”
