The Poetry & Poetics Reading Group meets once a month from 7:30-9:00pm in the Graduate Lounge  of Fisher-Bennett Hall (Room 330), and on an ad hoc basis at the Kelly Writers House. This flexible, conversation-based discussion group focuses especially on twentieth-century poetry and contemporary critical work in English. We are open to the public and encourage interdisciplinary conversation between poetry and poetics, the sciences, and the arts. Our group is grounded in the English Department at the University of Pennsylvania, but extends into a larger community of poets, critics, and scholars engaged with contemporary poetics in Philadelphia and elsewhere.
