Wednesday, July 11, 2018

PBS NEWS HOUR -- Across the U.S., Steven Dickison — director of another Poetry Coalition partner, the Poetry Center and American Poetry Archives at San Francisco State University — said that there is much to learn from young poets and poets of color, especially in “rigid” academic environments.

“I have to keep learning from people who are younger and in more vulnerable positions than I am,” he said. “And I really believe that the academy is starting to wake up because of the presence of young writers and scholars within its field.”
