Description

This audiovisual recording from March 18, 1980 as part of the 11th annual UND Writing Conference: “The Storytellers” features June Jordan, Leslie Silko, and Richard Kostelanetz forming the panel “Beginnings.” The panelists discuss how they came to be writers, how ideas emerge in their writing, the importance of research and reading. June Jordan reads the recently completed first draft of a poem titled “From America: A Poem in Process.” The panelists also discuss the role of memory in imagination, religious training and artistic perspectives, growing from the art of others, argue the difference between poetics and prose and definitions of story through narrative and other forms, establishments that legislate publication and criticism, experimental writing, literary politics, and their felt responsibility as writers of modern art.

Moderator: Sheryl O'Donnell.
