Nicole Cooley: Resurrection Not Erasure

Our own Nicole Cooley will be taking part in this amazing panel, “Resurrection Not Erasure: When Poets Talk Back to History,” at the Association of Writers & Writing Programs Conference (more popularly known as AWP) this year in Kansas City.

“Poets whose work complicates or writes against dominant narratives will discuss how the persona poem challenges historical erasure and revises both the past and present. Panelists will discuss the ethical implications of the personal poem, their decisions to use persona in their work, and their underlying methodologies and research in voicing the past.”

Nicole will be talking alongside poets Alyse Bensel, Shane McCrae, Blas Falconer, and Cherene Sherrard. For those of you who are going to AWP, definitely go check that out! And if you’re not going to AWP, you can always contact us to ask Nicole about it!
