The Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry is very pleased to host this event, and to welcome back to Belfast two former Fullbright Distinguished Scholars, Erika Meitner and Wayne Miller. They will be joined by current PhD student Dane Holt for this afternoon reading.

She has received fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, the Sewanee Writers’ Conference, and the University of Wisconsin; in 2015 she was the Fulbright Distinguished Scholar in Creative Writing at Queen’s University Belfast. She teaches in the MFA creative writing program at Virginia Tech.

WAYNE MILLER is the author of four poetry collections, most recently Post- (Milkweed, 2016), which won the UNT Rilke Prize (for the best US poetry book of the year by a “mid-career poet”) and the Colorado Book Award. He has co-translated two books by the Albanian poet Moikom Zeqo, and he has co-edited three books, including Literary Publishing in the Twenty-First Century (Milkweed, 2016) and New European Poets (Graywolf, 2008). In 2013 he was the Fulbright Distinguished Scholar in Creative Writing at Queen’s University Belfast. He teaches at the University of Colorado Denver and edits the literary magazine Copper Nickel.

FLOW II

Thursday 2 May 2019 | 7pm

FREE

Donations Welcome

This concert will feature a series of improvisations that explore different tactics and approaches to the art form. The combination of different performance disciplines and backgrounds create a unique and immersive experience for both audience, and performers. FLOW offers a platform for those interested in improvisation. We work together to develop our perception of our fellow performers, realisation of ideas, and connection within the ensemble and the space. If inspired during the concert, all are welcome and encouraged to join in - to experience the performance from the inside.

FLOW was created by Patrick Moore as an open platform for improvisation in 2016.
