Brief Description:

Writing from the perspective of another requires great investment and momentous risk, all with no promise of reward. So why do poets continue to explore persona as a creative approach in our work? In this seminar, we will explore Shirali’s scholarship on the persona spectrum—discussing “near” persona and “far” persona as ways of conceiving of our poems’ speakers, and ultimately engaging in philosophical exploration of the ethical stakes and creative potential inherent in stepping outside our own subjectivities.

The opening poet for this event is Libby Bernardin!

South Carolina poet Libby Bernardin is the author of Stones Ripe for

Sowing (Press 53, 2018) and two chapbooks, The Book of Myth (SC

Poetry Initiative, 2009) and Layers of Song (Finishing Line Press, 2011).

Journal publications include The Asheville Poetry Review, Southern

Poetry Review, Kakalak. She has won poetry awards from the Poetry

Society of South Carolina and the North Carolina Poetry Society, and

has served as co-director of the highly respected Litchfield Tea & Poetry

Series until 2019. Her new book, House in Need of Mooring (Press 53,

2022), is yet another testament to the silver lining of the pandemic. A

retired English teacher from the University of South Carolina, she leads

poetry workshops for the Georgetown County Library. She is a lifetime

member of the Board of Governors of the SC Academy of Authors.
