Award-winning poet Carl Phillips visits UConn for annual poetry reading event (via The Daily Campus)

The 53rd Annual Wallace Stevens Poetry Program presented award-winning poet Carl Phillips Tuesday night at Konover Auditorium in the Dodd Center at the University of Connecticut.

The mission of the Wallace Steven’s Poetry Program is to promote poetry at UConn and in the Hartford area by offering two poetry readings each spring –  one at UConn and the other at a high school in Hartford­ – by a poet of national or international acclaim.

Philips, who was “intimidated” and “overwhelmingly honored” to be chosen, admitted that he never felt like a writer. Although, according to the evening’s program, Phillips is referred to as “one of the most original, influential and productive of lyric poets in America.”
