The Sarah Lawrence College MFA literary colloquium is a weekly series of talks given by writing faculty members, visiting writers, and publishing professionals, touching on every aspect of the writing life.
Diane Seuss on the Craft of Poetry – Restless Herd: The Intimate Work of Making a Book of Poems
The talk will address the deeply personal work of writing and bringing order to a book of poems, with references to Dickinson's process, Gregory Orr's notion of poetic temperaments, and how autobiography and my own writing process have converged.

Diane Seuss’s most recent collection is frank: sonnets (Graywolf Press 2021). Still Life with Two Dead Peacocks and a Girl, (Graywolf Press 2018) was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in Poetry. Four-Legged Girl (Graywolf Press 2015) was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Seuss is a 2020 Guggenheim Fellow. She was raised by a single mother in rural Michigan, which she continues to call home.
