Penn Poetry and Poetics offers a series of casual, conversational events structured around the presentation of one or two poems and a short critical talk by each guest.

Future readers, and non-performance meetings, are still to-be-confirmed, but this semester promises Great Times.

Kristen Gallagher’s most recent poetry collection is We Are Here (2011). Since then: “Florida,” a chapbook from Well Greased Press, “Dossier on the Site of a Shooting,” a multi-platform digital work on GaussPDF, and “Untitled (Rosewood),” text w screenshots, in Printed Web 3. Her essay “Cooking A Book with Low Level Durational Energy; or, How to Read Tan Lin’s Seven Controlled Vocabularies” just came out in Reading the Difficulties from The University of Alabama Press, and her essay “Teaching Freire and CUNY Open Admissions” was recently anthologized in Class and the College Classroom: Essays on Teaching (Bloomsbury). She is Professor of English at City University of New York–LaGuardia Community College in Queens, New York.
