2019 Association of Writers and Writing Programs Annual Conference | Portland, OR
Moderator: “#SonnetsSoWhite?: Poets of Color on Race and Traditional Verse Forms”
With panelists Erica Dawson, TJ Jarrett, Cortney Lamar Charleston, and Jee Leong Koh
March 29, 2019

Writing in received forms has long been considered a particularly white tradition, and poets of color who write in form are too often seen as engaging in a mode largely exclusive to white writers. Our panel challenges this notion and asks poets of color to discuss how traditional verseforms factor into their personal and poetic identities. The aim is to restructure the conversation around the politics of form by celebrating it as a powerful poetic device fully accessible to writers of color.
