This event is organized and sponsored by The Loft’s Wordsmith, a craft, career, and connection conference that takes place November 2 - 3 at the McNamara Alumni Center on the University of Minnesota campus.

Waters Deep: A Great Lakes Poetry Reading

Split Rock Review celebrates the release of Waters Deep, an anthology of Great Lakes poetry, co-edited by Crystal S. Gibbins and Michelle Menting. Come listen to a diverse group of contributing poets read from Waters Deep and discuss how they’ve been inspired by the Great Lakes and the woods, watersheds, hills, bluffs, iron and copper ranges, snow belts, rustbelts, and communities that surround them. From layers of history and human culture to natural landscapes and built environments, the voices, perspectives, and styles of the poets featured in Waters Deep are as varied and powerful as the lakes themselves. A Q&A session will follow the reading.

This event is scheduled in Meeting Room 7 at the KI Convention Center in Green Bay, WI.

Poetry Readers: Milton J. Bates, Janna Knittel, Issa M. Lewis, Rachel Morgan, M. Bartley Seigel, Phillip Sterling, Emily Stoddard, Connor Yeck
