Poetry & Poetics

The Poetry & Poetics Reading Group meets once a month from 6:30-8:00pm in the Graduate Lounge of Fisher-Bennett Hall (Room 330). This flexible, conversation-based discussion group focuses especially on twentieth and twenty-first century poetry and contemporary critical work in English. We are open to the public and encourage interdisciplinary conversation between poetry and poetics, new media, cinema studies, 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. To join, email orchid at sas dot upenn dot edu. For more information, visit http://pennpoetics.wordpress.com. For more information contact Orchid, orchid(at)sas.upenn.edu, or Davy Knittle, dknittle(at)sas.upenn.edu.

All events will take place in the Grad Lounge, Fisher-Bennett Hall 330.
