Join us for an encounter with poet Mark Wunderlich at International Institute of Madrid.

 

Wunderlich's collections of poetry include The Ancorage (1999), winner of the Lambda Literary Award, and Voluntary Servitude (2004). As J.D. McClatchy said of Wunderlich's debut, "The Ancorage bravely takes up the raw mess of desire and pain, the cold ache of longing and loss, and in sleek and searing poems exposes the way we live now to the larger powers of the racing heart and the radiant imagination." Wunderlich's poems engage themes of sexuality, spirituality and power, balancing a baroque attention to detail with driving movement.

 

His honors include fellowships from the National Endowment of the Arts, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the Bread Loaf Writers Conference. He has also been awarded the Amy Lowell Poetry Travelling Scholarship and the Wallace Stegner Fellowship from Stanford University. His poetry has been featured in numerous anthologies, including The New Young American Poets (2000, ed. Kevin Prufer), and Word of Mouth: An Anthology of Gay American Poetry (2000. ed. Timothy Liu).

 

Wunderlich has taught writing at Sarah Lawrence College, San Francisco State University, and Bennington College. He lives in New York's Hudson River Valley.

 

 

The evening will begin with two new songs by Jennifer McCauley and three poems by Naomi Mulvihill. Video interview produced for Youtube by Laurence Sladek of Unwanted Artists. Radio interviews with Alberto Alonso & Kyle Millar.
