Virtual AWP: A Conversation with Joy Harjo and Rob Casper

What can poetry bring us in this time of crisis? What might poets laureate do in such a moment? Joy Harjo, the 23rd Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry at the Library of Congress, talks about her work in the position as well as the role poets and poetry can play right now. Joy Harjo will be the Keynote Speaker at # AWP21 in Kansas City, MO, March 3-6, 2021. Her work powerfully connects us to the earth and the spiritual world with direct, inventive lyricism that helps us reimagine who we are.
