Christopher Merrill on Writing the World

Christopher Merrill on Writing the World

Listen in as we speak with Hermitage writer in residence Christopher Merrill about his upcoming discussion “Poetry and Politics: Notes from the Front” at State College of Florida, Venice on Monday, February 23. The first recipient of the recently created Annette Dignam Hermitage/SCF Residency in Literature, Merril will talk about his work in cultural diplomacy with the U.S. State Department; the National Endowment for the Humanities, for which he serves on the National Council; and the U.S. National Commission for the United Nations Scientific Cultural Organization (UNESCO). With UNESCO, Merrill is helping a team of Iraqi writers and scholars secure Baghdad’s entry into UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network as a City of Literature.

Find out how we can write a better world.
