Kevin Killian’s visit will begin on Friday, February 6 with a lecture titled The Color in Darkness. The following Monday, February 9, Killian’s events will continue with a reading, and a book signing will follow, during which his limited edition signed broadside and books will be for sale. The broadsides will be sold for $10 each, and all sales for the broadsides and books will be cash only. Both events are free and open to public.
Kevin Killian is one of the original members of the New Narrative movement as well as a queer scholar, the editor and biographer of the American poet Jack Spicer (1925-1965), the head of the San Francisco Poets Theater since the late 80s, and an accomplished poet, novelist, art writer, and critic in his own right. Group formations, however, are his specialty. He has taught writing at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco for the past decade, and he is in the Hall of Fame of people who write reviews for Amazon, having completed over 2,500 of them in recent years.
The Allen Ginsberg Visiting Fellowship is distinguished from other visiting programs because of its intensive nature. The Fellow’s visit includes a reading, instruction, and direct contact with students, who are given access to the writer’s expertise, including a weekend practicum. Community-wide events are incorporated into the Fellow’s stay, including a reading, a lecture relating to the development of poetry/prose in the 20th and 21st centuries, and a book signing. The Allen Ginsberg Visiting Fellowship is made possible by the generous support of the Committee on Poetry, founded by the late Allen Ginsberg.
