Poetry Reading: Urban Echo Poets

Archived readings & workshops
Dec 6 Saturday, December 6
7:00pm, Pay What You Can

What do the tongue and the ear want you to deal with? Through a writing exercise, a language lesson, some translation/mistranslation, and Butch Morris’ theory of conducted improvisation, we’ll explore sound and voice, the natural and the artificial as kinfolk, and allow the uncomfortable to become comfortable. Please bring one poem - by you or a favorite poet - that speaks in two or more languages, voices, or dialects. In the spirit of conducted improvisation, we’ll work with these poems as we compose our own.
