This joint conversation between Geoffrey Nutter and Jennifer K Dick will open a dialogue about the ever-changing nature of writing poetry in the 21st century. How have authors sought new techniques such as collage, montage, fragmentation and insertion into original writing not merely allusions and quotes, but historical and linguistic references? Collage also provides new modes of exploration to address trauma and conflict, grief, and plural identities.

Geoffrey Nutter is a renowned poet and creative writing teacher. He is the author of five poetry collections. He studied poetry at the University of Iowa Writers Workshop and won the Academy of American Poets prize. He has taught at Princeton University, the New School, NYU, Columbia, and the University of Iowa. He is originally from California and now lives in New York City.

Jennifer K. Dick  is the author of Lilith: A Novel in Fragments (Corrupt, 2019), Circuits (2013) and Fluorescence (2004) as well as 6 chap/artbooks. That Which I Touch Has No Name is forthcoming in London this year. She also teaches writing, Literature and Civilization at the Université de Haute Alsace, Mulhouse, runs the Ivy Writers Paris bilingual experimental poetry reading series and co-organizes Ecrire L’Art residencies for French authors with Sandrine Wymann, the director of the Kunsthalle-Mulhouse Centre d’Art Contemporain.
