CFK Poetics featuring Tom Hunley, Lecture 1
October 6 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
The College of the Florida Keys is hosting CFK Poetics , a series that aims to develop awareness of an immersion in the humanities landscape by connecting students and the community with poetry on the national level in a way that is immediate to their own experiences. Since 2019, visiting poets have come to Key West or appeared virtually to share their work and have conversations with the student body as well as the community at large. Students and community members are welcomed and encouraged to attend. Admission is free.
In this afternoon session, visiting poet Tom Hunley will talk about his process of revising creative writing and the pedagogy of revision. Tom C. Hunley currently serves as Professor & Director of MFA Program at Western Kentucky University. He holds degrees from University of Washington, Eastern Washington University, and Florida State University. He is the author of two textbooks, most recently The Poetry Gymnasium: 110 Proven Exercises to Shape Your Best Verse (McFarland & Co., Inc., 2012). He is the co-editor, with Alexandria Peary, of Creative Writing Pedagogies for the Twenty-First Century (Southern Illinois University Press, 2015).
This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with The College of the Florida Keys.
