SPD News & Reviews

 

C.D. Wright

C.D. Wright, 1949-2016

We at SPD were deeply saddened by news of C.D. Wright's passing on January 12th. Her decades of contributions to the poetry community made it a stronger, more generative, more generous place to be, thanks to her belief in "the function of poetry to locate those zones inside us that would be free, and declare them so." Her voice will be missed.

 

Here's just the latest example of Wright's brilliant work:

 

The Poet, The Lion, Talking Pictures, El Farolito, A Wedding in St. Roch, The Big Box Store, The Warp in the Mirror, Spring, Midnights, Fire & All
