Session: The Memoir in Poetry
Deep Cuts author Steve Coughlin (“hoping perhaps to rectify—to rewrite—all those long-ago moments that went awry”) and Sean Prentiss (winner of the National Outdoor Book Award and finalist for the Vermont Book Award for Finding Abbey) share their new memoirs-in-poems while talking about the joys and pitfalls of writing truthfully about our own worlds through poetry.
