A chance to visit & re-visit - with our Visiting Writers - some outstanding writers over the next 3 months, as Lenoir-Rhyne's 2019 joint-writers-in-residence, Anne-Marie Fyfe & Cahal Dallat, both Irish poets, both living in London, invite you to discover/re-discover the magic of words in the hands of some of their own favorite writers, some of the all-time greats... With two writers in each session, Cahal & Anne-Marie will provide a little backstory on each, and lead us in close-readings of some favorite poem/prose passages (handouts provided, so no advance study required!), & create a lively literary discussion evening: everyone welcome!
Breathe the Rich Air: New England poets, for sure, yet Bishop's poetry owes as much to her Nova Scotia upbringing (which Anne-Marie Fyfe has explored in the past year); while her Bostonian friend & Maine summer neighbour, Robert Lowell, owes much in turn to Bishop, & to New Jersey's William Carlos Williams, & Kentucky's Allen Tate. Emotional, artistic & actual geographies.
Come visit Lenoir-Rhyne University's graduate campus located on North Main Street in Columbia, SC! This campus is home to our CACREP-accredited Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, our Master of Arts in Human Services (online program), our Master of Arts in Religious Leadership (online program), our Master of Science in Occupational Therapy, and four theological graduate degrees including a Master of Divinity! This event is a great time to have questions answered about enrollment steps, financial aid, and any other concern associated with graduate school. We will take you on a tour of campus and view student housing along the way, offer an opportunity to meet with a professor, and introduce you to the campus culture. The event will take place at the Price House. If you have questions, please contact Jonathan White at 803-461-3297. We look forward to seeing you in Columbia!
