About the Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry
The Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry is a nonprofit that provides leading poets with the opportunity to explore in-depth their own thinking on the subject of poetry and poetics, and through financial and logistical support, to arrange for the delivery of several lectures that result from these investigations. Charlie Wright, Publisher of Wave Books, established the BWLS in memory of his late father, the businessman and philanthropist Bagley Wright. The Series is spearheaded by Charlie Wright and Wave Books editor Matthew Zapruder. Lectures are delivered publicly in partnership with institutions nationwide.
