Join some of Canada’s most accomplished writers, educators and students on the beautiful campus of the University of British Columbia for a long weekend of readings, panels and seminars about the art and craft of literature.
CCWWP Panel: Performance as a Site of Research. Poetry Craft & Criticism + Poetry Readings
“In the crosshairs of language, literature, spoken word, and drama, lies the modern day poetry reading. What practices do published poets employ to produce a literature that inhabits the aural as well as the demands of the text? How might poets respond to bpnichol’s dictum: performance as a site of research.
Wayde Compton, Jordan Abel, Jen Currin, and Ray Hsu in conversation with Renee Sarojini Saklikar, will give short talks about their poetic practice and their ideas on approaches to poetry.”
I’ll also be discussing the essay These Layers That Surround Us from Ooligan Press, a short essay about the writing of “the next growing season,” and a poem memorializing the death of Canadian workers.
