The Poetry Project
at St. Marks Church
131 E. 10th Street
New York, NY 10003
A panel discussion on conceptualizations of the social as they relate to poetry and poetic praxis. What – and of what consequence – is a poetry “community”? Are reimaginings necessary and/or possible? Panelists include Linh Dinh, Anne Boyer and Brian Ang.
Anne Boyer’s works include Anne Boyer’s Good Apocalypse, Art is War, The 2000s, Ma Vie en Bling, Selected Dreams with a Note on Phrenology, The Romance of Happy Workers, My Common Heart, and JOAN. She was once the editor, with K. Silem Mohammad, of Abraham Lincoln, and once the curator, with Robert J. Baumann, of An Actual Kansas Reading Series. She lives in Kansas, and is an Assistant Professor of the Liberal Arts at the Kansas City Art Institute.
Brian Ang is the author of Pre-Symbolic (Insert Press, forthcoming), Communism (Berkeley Neo-Baroque, 2011) and Paradise Now (Grey Book Press, 2011). Recent poetry and criticism have appeared in Jacket2 and Lana Turner: A Journal of Poetry and Opinion. He edits ARMED CELL in Oakland, California.
