Event description

Description

What do we think about poetry? And how do the thoughts created by a poem help us create our own, new poems? This lecture will be presented by three poet-scholars who are investigating the Australian public's perceptions of poetry. Each speaker will present a poem, and discuss the ways in which that poem has moved and influenced the speaker's own thinking and writing.

Ali Alizadeh is a poet, novelist and theorist, and a Senior Lecturer at Monash University. Cassandra Atherton is an award winning prose-poet, critic and scholar and was a Harvard Visiting Scholar in English in 2016 sponsored by Stephen Greenblatt. Jessica Wilkinson is a ‘poetic biographer’, scholar and editor of Rabbit: a journal for nonfi ction poetry. She is Senior Lecturer at RMIT University.

Join us for ideas, inspiration and refreshments.
