About this event

Inspired Writers Series

Hosted by MFA Program’s Phil Klay

Gregory Pardlo

“The Poetry and Prose of Contemporary America”

Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and memoirist Gregory Pardlo has written some of the most incisive and artistically bold poetry and nonfiction of the past decade, delving into the work of unions, the intellectual weight of blue-collar labor, American patriotism, Black America cultures, masculinity, as well as the aesthetic and moral challenges of identity and witness in poetry. Hailed by the Pulitzer Prize jury as an author of “clear-voiced poems that bring readers the news from 21st century America, rich with thought, ideas and histories public and private,” Pardlo will be joined in conversation by Fairfield professor and National Book Award-winning author Phil Klay.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
