Lenoir-Rhyne University

Lenoir-Rhyne University’s Visiting Writers Series (VWS) will present Anne- Marie Fyfe, on Thursday, February 28 in Belk Centrum at 7 p.m.  

Anne-Marie Fyfe is the author of five collections of poetry and former chair of the National Poetry Society. Fyfe is the founder of the Troubadour International Poetry Prize and established Coffee-House Poetry at the Troubadour, a program that organizes poetry readings, seminars, and workshops. She has been Aldeburgh’s Poetry Trust Writer-in-Residence and the winner of the Academi Cardiff International Poetry Competition. She has taught at numerous workshops, including the creative writing section of the John Hewitt International Summer School. In response to Fyfe's collection, The Ghost Twin, Helen Dunmore describes Fyfe's poetry as "taut, eloquent and deeply felt. Her poems are haunted by what the past does to the present, and by the physical relics of that past which is only relayed in snatches." Her most recent poetry collection is, House of Small Absences, which was published in 2015.

Sponsors of the 2018-19 VWS include: Barnes & Noble, NC Arts Council, United Arts Council of Catawba County, National Endowment for the Arts, Hickory Hop, Crowne Plaza, Café Rule, Hickory Public Library, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams and Robert Abbey Fine Lighting.

Mission Statement:

The Visiting Writers Series of Lenoir-Rhyne University believes that reading is an essential element in the creation of vibrant communities. We invite authors to read from their own works in a relaxed environment before university and community audiences. We believe the beauty and power of words help us make sense of the world. Children's writers, mystery writers, essayists, poets, novelists all participate in this celebration of the written and spoken word. We believe that a community of readers is a better community.
