Limited Capacity filling up

Don’t think a low residency program means “low value.” These three poets, Kevin Carey, Mark Hillringhouse and R.G. Evans met while attending a low residency MFA program at Fairleigh Dickinson University. Since the quest of that terminal degree they have published six books of poetry collectively and have collaborated on two poetry documentary films. They will be reading from their books and discussing how their time in a terminal degree program led them to publication, and the mixing of media with poetry, including filmmaking, music and photography, and how their time together in this academic pursuit informed their work. They'll discuss the value of their low res experience and how it energized their poetry careers.
