Description

In this audiovisual recording from Wednesday, March 22, 2017, as part of the 48th Annual UND Writers Conference: “Citizen,” Mai Der Vang reads poems from her collection Afterland. Vang also responds to audience questions about whether her role as a Hmong writer and storyteller is different because she’s a woman, the incorporation of personal stories with historical material, how she works with trauma and memory, the state of poetry in the Hmong language, advice for writers who are told to only write what they know, her revision process in poetry, and others.

Introduced by Cody Deetz.
