Poetry Reading & Process Talk

December 5, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

Join us for the next Siren Nation Speaks on December 5, a Poetry Reading & Process Talk with authors Dao Strom, Michele Glazer, and Endi Bogue Hartigan. They’ll read from their work, talk about their creative processes, and answer your questions. Find out how they get started on a piece, see it forward, and explore the power of language and art.

Speakers

Dao Strom is an artist who works with three “voices”—written, sung, visual—to explore hybridity and the intersection of personal and collective histories. The author of five books and two song-cycles, most recently the poetry collection Instrument (Fonograf Editions) and its companion album, Traveler’s Ode (Antiquated Future Records), Strom was born in Vietnam and grew up in the Sierra Nevadas of California. Her bilingual poetry-art book, You Will Always Be Someone From Somewhere Else (AJAR Press), was a finalist for the 2019 Firecracker Award for Poetry. She is the co-founder and director of two collective art projects, She Who Has No Master(s) and De-Canon. www.daostrom.com

Michele Glazer is the author of four books, most recently fretwork (Iowa 2021). She says of these poems, “I try to place myself in the presence of damage—fragmentation, disruption, gap—where language ‘fails,’ and where the natural world, if looked at closely, might offer a way to get at, get in, gather soundings. In this, my work is inspired by language, by feeling at a loss for language, and trying, in language, to give shape to a silence that gets at loss.” Her previous books are It Is Hard to Look at What We Came to Think We’d Come to See (Pittsburgh), Aggregate of Disturbances (Iowa), and On Tact, & the Made Up World (Iowa). Glazer teaches in the MFA and BFA programs at Portland State University.

Endi Bogue Hartigan’s third book of poetry, oh orchid o’clock, is forthcoming from Omnidawn Publishing in Spring, 2023. Her chapbook the seaweed sd treble clef, a sequence of poems and photographs, was published this year by Oxeye Press. Endi is author of Pool [5 choruses] (Omnidawn Publishing), which was selected for the Omnidawn Open prize; and One Sun Storm (Center for Literary Publishing), which won the Colorado Prize for Poetry, and both books were finalists for the Oregon Book Award. Her work has appeared in numerous journals, and she has contributed to collaborative projects with writers and artists in the Pacific Northwest. www.endiboguehartigan.com
