Spilling the Tea: A Conversation between D. A. Powell and Camille T. Dungy
July 13 @ 2:30 pm - 3:20 pm$10
“How do ideas become poems and how do poets come up with ideas? Poets Camille Dungy and D. A. Powell talk about the role of conversation, influence, history, form, resistance, improvisation and stubborn independence in their own work and work they admire. Also, how to support and encourage poetry as a living art, an impactful and meaningful interaction between words, space, and humanity. What to listen to and what to shut out. How to address the chronic cruelties of the world with compassion. What to eat, what to drink, and what to leave for poison.”
