A quick note on anachronistic traditions:
Please be aware that on Sunday, 13 March, 2022, at 2:00 AM, the eastern USA will switch to Daylight Savings Time, resulting in clocks being advanced by an hour. If you are joining us from a location or a country that does not engage in this game of temporal leapfrog, please calculate the time difference between your time zone and Eastern Daylight Time so you can join the workshop on schedule.
Charles Simic is the author of numerous collections of poems, among them, The Lunatic; Master of Disguises; Selected Poems: 1963-2003, for which he received the 2005 International Griffin Poetry Prize; The World Doesn’t End: Prose Poems, for which he received the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry; Classic Ballroom Dances, which won the University of Chicago’s Harriet Monroe Award and the Poetry Society of America’s di Castagnola Award.
