Knoxville Writers’ Guild: Love, Loss, and Morning Light

Category: Lecture, panel and Literature, spoken word, writing


Poets Linda Parsons and Stellasue Lee will open National Poetry Month with “Love, Loss, and Morning Light,” a call-and-response reading from their poetry collections Candescent (Iris Press 2019) and Queen of Jacks (Bombshelter Press 2019). In finely crafted work about childhood’s shaky ground, old and new love, caregiving for parents, animal spirits, and the healing path of meditation, Parsons and Lee explore grief and ungrieving into joy. A writing prompt will invite audience participation, with no poetry experience necessary.

Parsons and Lee host “WordStream: The Weekly Writer’s Voice” on WDVX-FM. Parsons is the reviews editor at Pine Mountain Sand & Gravel. She has contributed poetry to The Georgia Review, Iowa Review, Prairie Schooner, Southern Poetry Review, The Chattahoochee Review, Baltimore Review, Shenandoah, and Ted Kooser’s syndicated column, American Life in Poetry, among many others. Candescent is her fifth poetry collection (Iris Press, 2019). Lee was a founding editor of the poetry journal RATTLE and is now editor Emerita. Two of her books have been entrants for the Pulitzer Prize: Firecracker Red and Crossing the Double Yellow Line. Lee was winner of the grand prize of Poetry to Aide Humanity in 2013 by Al Falah in Malaysia.

Kino Lorber presents Bacurau
A few years from now... Bacurau, a small village in the Brazilian sertão, mourns the loss of its matriarch, Carmelita, who lived to be 94. Days later, its inhabitants (among them Sônia Braga) notice that their village has literally vanished from online maps and a UFO-shaped drone is seen flying overhead.
