Focusing on the intersection of scholarship and poetic practice, this group is currently experimenting with a new format of presentation. Invited speakers will first read a poem — often their own — which will be followed by a critical work on a correspondent issue, presented in dialog with the poem opening the meeting. The aim is for a conversation to emerge among readings of poetry, critical work, and an open network of outside concerns. Bringing practice face-to-face with theory and criticism, this group is conversation and event based. No advance readings are necessary; meetings will emphasize the live experience of the work in a shared space.
