Writing into the Wounds
Time: Oct. 30, 2020, 10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Location: Virtual Event
Part of the Syracuse Symposium series.
Philip Metres (John Carroll University)
Discussing his own work, Metres has said, “I believe that poetry can be a technology to help remember the past, but not be suffocated by it. To listen to the ancestors in the spirit world, but not worship them or be imprisoned by them. A technology to dream the future, but not be destroyed by it. To remember what we have not yet known.”
This event is part of Syracuse Symposium’s year-long series on “Futures.”
Phil Memmer, YMCA Downtown Writers Center
