Lecture on Gulf South Poetics at NOPF 2023

Next month I’m delighted to be giving a lecture on the poetics of the American Gulf South at the 2023 New Orleans Poetry Festival, focusing on the state of Mississippi — this talk will be a revised and updated version of the lecture from last year at the Mississippi Poetry Society, with new works and new poets under discussion. Even better news is that poet and critic C.T. Salazar will serve as the respondent for the lecture. Both of us are looking forward to a great conversation.

Details on NOPF 2023 (including how to register) are at nolapoetry.com; the talk will take place on the afternoon of Saturday, April 15.
