Poets on Craft, Sealey, Kwock Kim, JacksonLaunched in 2008 with Major Jackson and Suji Kwock Kim, this popular series features conversations between mid-career poets of color. In moderated discussion, poets explore such topics as strategies, voice, new and evolving forms, and the complexities of working within or against the canon. Cave Canem partners with the Creative Writing Program at The New School to present these dynamic forums.
