Only recent history has put poets into universities. In the past, poets have traveled, begged, and worked in insurance companies or as lawyers, surveyors, merchants, doctors, census takers. Although some of us now teach in universities, this is a gathering of poets who have worked outside of the academy—by choice, chance, struggle, and/or luck, surviving through audacity, guile, starvation, and love. Come hear the reasons, histories, work, and trajectories of these writing lives in the world.AWP Conference: Room 502 A, LA Convention Center, Meeting Room Level
