Creative Writing Lecture: Renee Gladman
Series organized by Ben Marcus, Writing
Renee Gladman is a writer and artist preoccupied with lines, crossings, thresholds, and geographies as they play out in the interstices of poetry and prose. She is the author of eleven published works, including a cycle of novels about the city-state Ravicka and its inhabitants, the Ravickians—Event Factory, The Ravickians, Ana Patova Crosses a Bridge, and Houses of Ravicka—as well as Calamities, a collection of linked auto-essays on the intersections of writing, drawing, and community, which won the 2017 CLMP Firecracker Award for Creative Non-Fiction, and two monographs of drawings: Prose Architectures and One Long Black Sentence. Recent essays and visual work have appeared in The Paris Review, Gulf Coast, Granta, Harper's, BOMB Magazine, and n+1. A 2014-15 fellow at Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University and recipient of a 2016 Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grant, a 2017 Lannan Foundation Writing Residency in Marfa, TX, she lives and makes work in New England with poet-ceremonialist, Danielle Vogel.
