Image’s 15th Annual Levertov Award
Reading and Reception with Award Recipient Carolyn Forché
Friday, October 5 | 7:30 p.m.
The New Hugo House
Image Journal and its co-sponsors, Seattle Pacific University’s English Department and Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Program, cordially invite you to attend the 15th annual Denise Levertov Award presentation and reading. Named for the poet Denise Levertov, who spent her last years in Seattle, the award is given annually to an artist, musician, or writer whose work exemplifies a serious and sustained engagement with faith. This year’s event will honor poet and social activist Carolyn Forché, whose honors include fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Lannan Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
We are delighted that the Levertov Award will be one of the first events hosted at the new Hugo House location in Capitol Hill. Founded by three Seattle-based writers, Hugo House has been a literary and cultural hub for two decades, where literary icons like Billy Collins, Amy Bloom, and Sharon Olds have led workshops and given readings. We are thrilled to partner with them as they launch their next chapter.
Join us on Friday, October 5, for the award presentation and reading, followed by a question and answer period, as well as a wine and dessert reception. For more information on the award and Forché’s work, please visit the Image website at imagejournal.org/levertov.
