Art United will focus on communicating about the unconscious through poetry. Participants will work on individual and collaborative poems with acclaimed poet and editor Kaveh Akbar (author of Calling a Wolf a Wolf).
Kaveh Akbar's poems appear in The New Yorker, Poetry, Paris Review, Best American Poetry, The New York Times, and elsewhere. He is the author of Calling a Wolf a Wolf (Alice James/Penguin UK 2017) and a chapbook, Portrait of the Alcoholic, published by Sibling Rivalry. The recipient of a Levis Reading Prize, a Pushcart Prize, and a Ruth Lilly and Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry Fellowship, Kaveh is the founding editor of Divedapper, a home for interviews with major voices in contemporary poetry. Born in Tehran, Iran, he teaches at Purdue University and in the low-residency MFA programs at Randolph College and Warren Wilson.
This workshop is co-sponsored by the MFA Creative Writing Program and the NC State University Libraries.
