Our 2011-2012 season will call to attention the material life of the artist, as person, who, in addition to being creator/conspirator to a body of work, possesses a physical body, and real financial, medical and social needs. To inaugurate this season, we’ll begin withan unique event focusing on feminism and writing in the many stages of our poetic lives.

The evening will include an exclusive screening of The Poetry Deal, Melanie La Rosa’s film about legendary poet Diane di Prima, readings by internationally acclaimed poets Ana Bozicevićand Caroline Crumpacker, with Hannah Zeavin and an opportunity for conversation among presenters and audience.

Curated by Rachel Levitsky, Krystal Languell and Emily Skillings
