Northern Renaissance Arts & Sciences Summer Series 2016: Opening keynote by poet Bob Hicok

2016-07-12 by

American poet Bob Hicok opened the ninth annual Northern Renaissance Arts & Sciences Reading Series with selections from his newest book, “Love & Sex.” He is the author of nine books of poetry, a Guggenheim Fellow and a two-time winner of the National Endowment for the Arts Fellow.

Hicok is an associate professor of creative writing at Virginia Tech and an associate professor of English at Purdue University. He is from Michigan and before teaching owned and ran a successful automotive die design business.

The reading series, sponsored by the UAA Department of Creative Writing & Literary Arts, is free and open to the public. It occurs for nine consecutive evenings and features the work of some of Alaska’s and the U.S.’s most notable writers. Each reading begins at 8 p.m. in Fine Arts Room 150. The 2016 series runs from July 10-19.

This reading series is part of the CWLA Summer Residency program. The residency allows students and faculty to immerse themselves in the work of writers, reading, writing and sharing ideas.

The classes and workshops are informative, intensive, and inspirational. Students have the opportunity to learn from every faculty member, in every genre, while discovering which mentors are best suited for their own work.

Everyone, faculty and students, gathers informally at most meals and the entire group shares several meals including the informal “graduation” ceremony. The residency is the exhausting and exhilarating highlight of the year.  It is during the residency that students and faculty establish a sense of community that sustains them throughout the rest of the year. 

This podcast was recorded on Sunday, July 10, 2016 in Fine Arts 150.
