Join us as Mark Nowak and Worker Writers School poets present Coronavirus Haiku (Kenning Editions, 2021) and talk about their life as “frontline workers” during the Covid 19 crisis and their engagement with the Worker Writers School. The school supports writers from one of New York City’s most ubiquitous yet least-heard populations: low-wage workers. Mark Nowak, a writer and founding director of the school, is a poet, cultural critic, playwright and essayist, from Buffalo, New York, and author of three poetry collections. A portion of his critical book Social Poetics (Coffee House Press, 2020) chronicles his work with the Worker Writers School. Cosponsored by SF State's Labor Archive and Research Center and The Poetry Center. With emcee Tanya Hollis, Interim Director, LARC.
