Steve McLaughlin

Steve McLaughlin at the Writers House on February 16, 2017. He was a KWH mainstay for some ten years—in many ways shaped our recording and digitizing protocols and added mightily to the commitment of our community to edgy edges of the avant-garde past and contemporary and really can be said—along with Chris Mustazza, Nick Montfort and Aaron Levy—to have been among our first true digital humanists. This time he was back to meet with the PennSound team as they began to plan for the future of PennSound. Welcome home, Steve!


poet friends

Ron Silliman and Rachel Blau DuPlessis, eminent poets and dear friends of the Writers House—at a recent reading. (Check out Ron's visit as a Kelly Writers House Fellow in 2011: HERE. And watch or listen to a recording of Rachel's major reading in 2011 in celebration of her long poem, Drafts: HERE.)
