After the Fire…The Fire Still Burns

A Late Style of FireFormer VCU Professor and renown poet Larry Levis is the feature of a new documentary, “A Late Style of Fire.”  VCU MFA alum Michele Poulos is director and producer of “A Late Style of Fire,” which was also co-produced by Professor Greg Donovan.

Using funds from a successful Kickstarter campaign, Poulos and Donovan were able to chase down Levis’ family and writing peers, including some of the most famous poets in the world: Guggenheim Fellow David St. John, Poet Laureate Charles Wright, and Pulitzer Prize-winner Philip Levine, a former poet laureate who taught Levis at Fresno State University and died shortly after filming.
