Poetry Reading with Scott Cairns, Jennifer Maier & Mischa Willett

  • Richard Hugo House 1634 11th Avenue Seattle, WA, 98122 United States (map)

Hugo House presents three poets—Scott CairnsJennifer Maier, and Mischa Willett—who will read from their work and discuss the ways each is drawn to language as a way of knowing. These poets are less concerned with expression than they are with discovery; they see writing as a process by which their trust in language leads them to see what they had not known to see and say what they had not known to say, in order to find a sense of the intangible within the visible world.

With Paul Éluard, they would propose that “there is another world, and it is in this one.”
