Poet returns to North Carolina for Writers' Forum
Laurinburg, N.C. - Former North Carolina resident and instructor at Delta State University Michael Smith will be the featured poet at the St. Andrews Writers Forum.
Free and open to the public, the Forum begins at 8 p.m. Thursday in Orange Main Lounge of the St. Andrews Presbyterian College campus.
A graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Hollins College and the University of Notre Dame, Smith has published poetry in magazines such as Free Verse, Hotel Amerika, The Iowa Review, The Notre Dame Review and Salt. His first full-length collection of poetry, How to Make a Mummy, was published in 2008 and he recently published his second collection Multiverse.
According to a review by Steve Tomasula, "Reading Mike Smith’s Multiverse is like watching Adam bring forth new creatures from the mud of language by breathing their name. Two books in one, one a bestiary of bodies, the other a personal history, both are a tour de force of the anagram: a thrilling demonstration of how the constraints of language and living produce poetry in life, as poem after poem infects one another."
