Slifka Foundation, the Academy of American Poets, and the Minnesota Prison Writing Workshop. Kleber-Diggs will be joined in conversation by former U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith on Tuesday, June 8. This event launches the new Max Ritvo Poetry Prize Presents virtual event series, an initiative that brings a vibrant group of poets and poetry advocates together for an evening of celebration and conversation.
