The University Of Arizona Poetry Center- Presents The First Annual Morgan Lucas Memorial Reading

The Poetry Center is proud to present the first annual Morgan Lucas Schuldt Memorial reading on Thursday, September 5, at 7:00 pm at the Poetry Center on 1508 E Helen Street. This reading will feature Eduardo C. Corral and Natalie Diaz, two award-winning emerging poets with important roots in Arizona. The reading will be followed by a Q&A session, book signing, and public reception.

Formerly known as “Next Word in Poetry,” the Morgan Lucas Schuldt reading features emerging and innovative writers. This event, presented annually as part of the Poetry Center’s Reading and Lecture Series, is named after poet and publisher Morgan Lucas Schuldt (2/11/1978–1/30/2012). Morgan was an innovative poet, a devoted friend and an enthusiastic publisher. A proud native of Toms River, New Jersey, Morgan earned a BA in English at the University of Virginia before coming to Tucson in 2000 to earn his MFA in poetry. Tucson is where he chose to work as a writer, editor, and teacher. It is fitting that the Poetry Center’s annual reading spotlighting emerging writers has been named in honor of Morgan. Please join us at 7:00 pm on September 5 for an event that will be special in every way.

The body’s the affliction.
And the -iction and the -ection?

What of the otherbody
vivid out of nowhere slowing?

The quick & brink we become
accompanied with.

From “Poem” in Schuldt’s chapbook L=u=N=G=U=A=G=E (Scantily Clad Press, 2009), which you can read in full online, with the author’s permission
