Listening: Silence, Language, and Noise
Conversations With Writers
How is listening an act of writing? How can poets employ listening in the writing practice?
Endi Hartigan will talk about how her book– Pool [5 choruses]– came from both the realization she was writing amid a profusion of public noise, and her desire to challenge it. She will discuss how listening to language, silence, and noise can lead to poems that weave those three elements together. We will explore the practices of listening to sound, music, pauses, gaps, and breath, and utilize these in our writing.
Her book, Pool [5 choruses] won the Omnidawn Open Poetry Book Prize and was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award. Her first book One Sun Storm won the Colorado Prize for Poetry and was also a finalist for the Oregon Book Award. In addition, she has published one chapbook, and her poems have appeared in numerous journals including VOLT, New American Writing, Denver Quarterly, and Ostrich Review..
