CHICAGO POETRY PROJECT: POETS TALKING
Since 2001, the Chicago Poetry Project has brought locally and nationally significant poets to Chicago audiences. This year, the Project initiates a new series of poet’s talks. In the tradition of Bob Perelman’s Folsom Street talk series, but without the book & DVD package, or the lectures of Prof. Irwin Corey, but without the academicism, the series aims to generate discussion of issues in poetics among writers and readers outside the university umbra. This inaugural year will take up the issue of education: how does a poet get educated? and how might he or she work as an educator, in and outside of writing?
Talks will take place at the Green Lantern Gallery, 1511 N. Milwaukee Ave.
March’s talk, “Epitaph, deixis and inscription in a few poems,” will feature Judith Goldman on Tuesday, Mar. 16, at 7:30pm.
Judith Goldman is the author of Vocoder (Roof Books 2001), DeathStar/rico-chet (O Books 2006), and a chapbook, “The Dispossessions” (Atticus/Finch 2009). l.b.; or, catenaries will be out from Krupskaya in late 2010. She coedited the annual anthology War and Peace with Leslie Scalapino (#4 appeared in June 2009). She teaches as a professor/Harper Schmidt Fellow in the arts humanities core and the creative writing department at the University of Chicago.
