Status: Not Accepted

Room 214D, Henry B. González Convention Center, Meeting Room Level
Friday, March 6, 2020
3:20 pm to 4:35 pm


How do voltas bring verve to video games? What's the connection between enjambments and anthropology? How, across the disciplines, does prosody help us through? Join five poets for a roundtable discussion about how they blend poetry into the classroom with a variety of disciplines beyond creative writing, including game development, anthropology, and gender studies. As the panelists are practicing writers, each will also discuss how interdisciplinary experiences have enriched their poems.
