In anticipation of the centenary celebrations of Bishop’s birth in 1911 and in connection with the upcoming publication of Elizabeth Bishop and The New Yorker: The Complete Correspondence (forthcoming in 2011 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux), editor and poet Joelle Biele and guest performers will present a staged theatrical performance of Bishop’s letters as a work-in-progress. In this workshop, audience members will be invited to comment on evaluating the translation of the epistolary to the performed, letter writing as performance, and the relationships between writers, editors, and their audience.
