PROSE EVENT With readings by Renee Gladman, Danielle Dutton and Amina Cain

May 17, 2011 @ 11:30 pm - May 18, 2011 @ 12:30 am

This is the second Belladonna* Collaborative PROSE EVENT. Each is a reading and conversation with prose writers who write at the intersection of fiction and the essay, producing texts that are urgent andoften unclassifiable. We will be especially interested in exploring theidea of the walker as essayist, flaneuring through city and suburban space, skirting around the crosswalks or margins of genre.

Renee Gladman is the author of four works of prose, most recently To After That (TOAF) and Event Factory (Dorothy) and one collection of poetry, A Picture-Feeling. Since 2005, she has operated Leon Works, an independent press for experimental prose and other thought-projects based in the sentence, making occasional forays into poetry. She teaches in the Literary Arts Program at Brown University, and lives in Massachusetts.

Danielle Dutton is the author of two books — S P R A W L and Attempts at a Life — and her fiction has appeared in magazines such as Harper’s, BOMB, and The Brooklyn Rail. She designs books at Dalkey Archive Press; teaches in The Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa; and edits Dorothy, a publishing project.

Amina Cain is the author of the short story collection I Go To Some Hollow (Les Figues Press, 2009), and an upcoming chapbook, Tramps Everywhere (InsertPress/PARROT SERIES). She is also a curator/organizer, and a teacher of creative writing/literature. Her writing has appeared in publications such as 3rd bed, Action Yes, Denver Quarterly, Dewclaw, EncyclopediaProject (F-K), LRL, onedit, and Wreckage of Reason: Xxperimental Prose by Women Writers, and has been translated into Polish on MINIMALBOOKS. She lives in Los Angeles.

Curated by Kate Zambreno.
