Conference To Celebrate Robert Creeley

Robert Creeley was a Distinguished Visiting Professor of Poetry & Poetics at UMaine from 2000 to 2003 and a frequent reader in the New Writing Series (S’00, S’01, F’01, F’02). This October, the University at Buffalo will celebrate his life and work with a three day conference, “On Words.” UMaine Associate Professor Benjamin Friedlander is one of the scholars who will present on Creeley’s achievement (others include Marjorie Perloff, Michael Davidson, and Charles Altieri), and numerous NWS poets will also participate, including Rosmarie Waldrop (F’03), Robin Blaser (F’02), Michael Gizzi (S’00), and Rachel Blau DuPlessis (F’01).
