Poetry Workshop with Steven Ratiner
Thursday December 5, 2013
1:30 PM until 4:00 PM
The Wayland Library is sponsoring Arlington poet Steven Ratiner as this year's Poetry Workshop instructor.
Mr. Ratiner is both a poet and an educator. His long-standing commitment is to expand the way audiences experience poetry and the arts. He has taught over 300 poetry residencies in schools throughout New England, as well as teaching in a number of colleges. His own writings have been published in the United States and abroad, in numerous journals, two recent poetry chapbooks, and in his book Giving Their Word, a fascinating compilation of interviews of famous poets, including Seamus Heaney, Mary Oliver, and Bei Dao. Besides his residencies and writings, Steven has collaborated many times with a variety of artists in multi-disciplinary performances that have involved poetry, dance, music, videography, and the visual arts. He has a particular interest in exploring the parallel experiences of poets in ancient Chinese and contemporary American cultures.
