November 1, 2012: Cedar Sigo Reading and Workshop

Please join the Poetry and Poetics Colloquium on November 1st, 2012 for a poetry reading and workshop with Cedar Sigo. The reading will take place at noon, and a light lunch will be provided.

Cedar Sigo is a San Francisco poet and the author of the full-length collections Stranger in Town (2010) and Selected Writings (2005), as well as numerous chapbooks. He was raised on the Suquamish reservation near Seattle, Washington, and studied at The Naropa Institute with poets Allen Ginsberg, Anne Waldman, Alice Notley, and Joanne Kyger, among others. Sigo’s poetry draws on personal experience and a host of cultural material, which is then culled into sculpted lyrical collages.

Sigo has given poetry readings at The Poetry Project at St. Marks Church, P.S. One Museum of Contemporary Art, The San Francisco Poetry Center, San Francisco Art Institute, and Beyond Baroque. He has collaborated with visual artists including Colter Jacobsen, Frank Haines, Cecilia Dougherty, and Will Yackulic, and has recently blogged for SF MOMA and The Poetry Foundation
