Poet and professor Barbara Cully leads a Shop Talk on the work of poet Morgan Lucas Schuldt (1978-2012). An acclaimed poet, editor, and graduate of the University of Arizona’s Creative Writing program, Schuldt influenced several generations of Tucson writers. His legacy is celebrated in the Poetry Center’s annual Morgan Lucas Schuldt Memorial Reading.
Shop Talks take a “round table” approach to scholarly investigation of poetic works, resulting in a collegial atmosphere. Each Shop Talk begins with a mini-lecture on the featured author, followed by a conversation about the author and the work. A study packet containing biographical information, excerpts, and criticism is made available for each event; no advance knowledge of the poet or works discussed is required. Discussions take place at 6:00 p.m. in the Dorothy Rubel Room at the Poetry Center.
