DESCRIPTION

Beyond being a means of putting together multiple voices and styles, can the poetry anthology also be a way to create a distinctive sense of place or community? Join three writers as they discuss how their anthologies chart out a path towards home, in the broadest sense of the word.

This is a live session, followed with a live Q&A afterwards.
