The Intimacy Of Editing With Amanda Jernigan
Tuesday October 10, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
LINC classroom, 4th floor, Central Branch, Hamilton Public Library
Scholarly editing can look from the outside like the dryest of disciplines: all those hours spent leafing through archives and collating versions. In this discussion, Amanda Jernigan will show how the work of scholarly editing can actually bring us marvellously close to writers’ lives and minds. With examples drawn from her work on poets Richard Outram and Steven Heighton.
Amanda Jernigan is a poet, librettist, essayist, and editor who lives in Hamilton, Ontario. She is the author of two books of poems, Groundworkand All the Daylight Hours. A third book — Years, Months, and Days — is forthcoming from Biblioasis in Spring, 2018.
