Please join us June 4th for a reception of the opening of the art exhibition "PaperWorks: Between Word and Image." The reception takes place from 5:00 to 7:00 PM in the Jeremy Ingalls Gallery at the Poetry Center. 

Whether you’ve worked with the prose poem for years or are completely new to the form, register for this class taught by Jamison Crabtree will introduce you to new techniques for writing, reading, and analyzing poetry. "Dislocating the Prose Poem: A Generative Workshop and Survey" occurs June 13th and 14th at 9:30am - 3:30 pm. 

In this letterpress workshop led by Amanda Beekhuizen, students will transform and shape a text of their own through printing and the book form. The workshop will be held at the School of Art’s Letterpress Lab and Book Arts facility at 1035 Mabel Street from July 18th-26th. Register today!

In this class attendees will consider the process of gathering material for essay writing as a kind of adventure—one that embraces synchronicity and opens up an expectation of what an essay can reveal. Register online today; "The Art of Research," taught by Aisha Sabatini Sloan, begins July 30th and runs through August 20th.

SPEEDWAY AND SWAN is a one-hour free-format radio program presenting contemporary poetry against a context of various musical selections.  Host Brian Blanchfield is joined in each episode by a rotating co-host who brings a selection of poetry from his or her personal canon, which, along with the freshest and best from the "new shelves," they read live. This week: featuring Jane Miller.

 

Join us for a screening of Even Though the Whole World is Burning, an intimate portrait of poet and environmentalist W.S. Merwin.  This screening will take place at The Loft Cinema at 5:00pm on July 29th, 2015,  hosted by the Poetry Center's Walt Whitman Circle.
