Living Writers: Soham Patel

Thursday, May 12, 2022 - 5:15pm

The UCSC Literature Department and Creative Writing Program Present: LIVING WRITERS SERIES SPRING 2022: CELEBRANT: SOUND ACTIONS showcases interdisciplinary writers who deeply engage in various sonic forms, whether the libretto and the operatic, sound and visual art, acoustic music and songwriting, or embodied meditations to explore the possibilities in being attentive to sound, as action and celebrant through writing. This hybrid series features an array of writers and artists who work across several modes (text, multi-media, meditation, and performance) exploring what happens between sound and/as verbal language, rendering its effects and configurations through poetry, prose, and sound inspired and activated interdisciplinary writing practices.

Sponsored by The Puknat Literary Endowment, The Porter Hitchcock Poetry Fund, The Laurie Sain Endowment, The Humanities Institute, and Bookshop Santa Cruz.

Thursdays at 5:20pm in the Humanities Lecture Hall. The public is invited to join April 14th, April 28th, and May 12th events on Zoom
