Christian Wiman is the author of four books of poetry, The Long Home, Hard Night, Every Riven Thing, and his new collection coming out this month, Once in the West. He has also written two books of prose, Ambition and Survival: Becoming a Poet and last year’s My Bright Abyss: Meditations of a Modern Believer. Wiman additionally served as the editor of Poetry, America’s oldest magazine devoted to verse, from 2003 – 2013. He currently teaches literature and religion at Yale Divinity School.
Matthew Sitman, who also sits down for the discussion, is the Dish’s literary editor. His Deep Dish essay, “Finding The Words For Faith” makes the argument that Wiman is the most important Christian writer in America today.
