How do we create art from our own wounds and wonders? In their poetry, memoirs, and essays, these three writers reckon with personal trauma and healing. Kaveh Akbar (Calling a Wolf a Wolf), Melissa Febos (Abandon Me), and Megan Stielstra (The Wrong Way to Save Your Life) discuss life and art with moderator Marisa Siegel, editor-in-chief of The Rumpus. Kaveh Akbar’s appearance is in partnership with the Poetry Foundation.
