About the Event

A reading by Wesleyan authors (Rae Armantrout, Abigail Chabitnoy, sam sax) illustrating differing experiences and methods of expression in 21st-century language arts. Whether reconfiguring the language of colonizing documents, staging stories to music, paring language into explosive soundbites, or questioning our perceptions by splicing language in unexpected ways, these poets illustrate how ethnicity, culture, sexuality, gender, and politics shape one’s work, and how poetry can be used to bear witness and to articulate the world we want. Portland Ballroom 252, Oregon Convention Center, Level 2
