Second Acts: AWP Offsite Reading

Like the musician’s “sophomore album,” the poet’s “second act” navigates complex terrain. Do readers crave the familiar world of a poet’s debut? How much should a poet show aesthetic range? Does introducing a new project threaten the development of poetic voice? This reading features fifteen poets whose second books have been released in the past year. Come help us celebrate this distinct lineup of second acts!
