Cultural Affairs and Distinguished Lecture Series
Project Abstract/ Summary
I write to request the Committee's support for the fall 2008 New V/riting Series, an innovative literary arts program sponsored by the English Department and the National Poetry Foundation.
The fall Series is projected to comprise seven events featuring eight writers, including three nationally prominent fiction writers (Lydia Millet, Diane Williams, and Davis Schneiderman), four poets from the United Kingdom (Alan Hasley, Geraldine Monk, Tom Pickard, and Tom Raworth), and the multi-talented African American poet and sound artist Tracie Morris. Capsule biographies of all eight writers are appended to this letter.
