WRITERS FORUM PRESENTS: IRIS JAMAHL DUNKLE

Event date: 
Thursday, April 18, 2019 - 6:30pm

Petaluma -Poet and writer, Iris Jamahl Dunkle will talk about research, intensity, and the art of crossing genres. Over the past five years, Dunkle has been writing the first full-length biography on Charmian Kittredge London. In order to tell the story of a woman whose contributions had been all but forgotten, Dunkle travelled archives, like the Huntington Library, to do research primarily in documents, letters, diaries, and notes.

While researching, she found herself wanting to write poetry about her subject. Alongside the biography, a manuscript of poems was also produced. Dunkle will share excerpts and poems from her works in progress and discuss how research can inspire both long, researched biographical work and short lyric poems.
