“The grace with which David Woo’s poems transform knowledge, as in insight and learning, into form and feeling and then back again into transformed knowledge is just astonishing.”

—Vijay Seshadri, Pulitzer-Prize-winning author of 3 Sections

How to find wisdom and spiritual sustenance in a time of crisis and uncertainty? In Divine Fire, David Woo answers with poems that move from private life into a wider world of catastrophe and renewal. In his new book of poems, Woo provides an astonishing vision of the world right now through his exploration of timeless themes of love, solitude, art, the body, and death.

Another exclusive offer for 2021 AWP attendees! Receive a signed first edition of Divine Fire by David Woo.

At Home and Out of Place with Anne Goldman, Megan Harlan, Patrick Madden, & Angela Morales

What does it mean to feel at home in a place—in the mind, in a family, in the US, across the Americas, and across the seas? Many of us have at times felt out of place among intimates. How do we write about our complex family lives without sacrificing honesty to ourselves or the dignity of those with whom we grew up? This discussion brings together four essayists whose recent books evoke the quotidian from diverse perspectives even as they linger on the strangeness resident in the ordinary.



4:00 PM – 5:00 PM EST on Sunday, March 7

Get Lost: Redefining Literary Travel Writing with Sarah Childers, Micah McCrary, Janine Joseph, Tyler Mills, & Hannah Saltmarsh

You’ve arrived. But where is your baggage? When our homes and favorite destinations become unfamiliar landscapes altered by trauma or grief and our doors remain closed because of widespread racism, border policing, xenophobia, child and eldercare, or the pandemic, the travel essay can document the way the changing self explores a defamiliarized place, even if we can’t go anywhere. This panel focuses on redefining literary travel writing, both before and during the era of Trump and the pandemic.



6:20 PM – 7:20 PM EST on Sunday, March 7

The Bubble in the Spirit Level: Catching and Freeing Poetic Beauty with Jane Hirshfield, Henri C0le, & David Woo

Two of the most renowned poets in America today join the moderator, a poet acclaimed as one of the best of his generation. The reading offers the gift of poems that catch and free inspiration in much the way that in “Sonnet,” Elizabeth Bishop’s exquisitely canted eye alighted on superficially beautiful things, like bubbles in spirit levels and bevels on mirrors, and turned them into a triumph of poetic discernment over the broken and the evanescent.
