BEACH TERM: August & Sept

Attention Next Objectivists & Fellow Travellers
After a summer hiatus, we resume our regular schedule, every other Thursday evening. We plan to meet on:
August 7
August 21
Sept. 4
Sept. 18

All meetings will begin @ 7:00 pm.

We will meet ON THE BEACH in Rogers Park. Specifically, we will be near the water a few yards north of Pratt Street. Follow Pratt all the way east. It dead-ends @ the beach. Slightly north is a concrete breakwater that runs out to a little lighthouse. Walk down the breakwater until you reach the water on your LEFT (past the grasslands). We'll be where the grass ends & the beach begins.

Please BRING A POEM by someone else. What have you been reading this summer? Bring a notebook & pencil as well, as we may attempt some kind of collective writing project.

(PS: In case of rain, as in it's really raining not just looking like rain, we'll probably convene at our favorite neighborhood bar, Cunneen's, on Devon.

We Meet this Wednesday @ Mozart Field House

We meet this Wednesday 14 May 6-8pm at Mozart Field House (2036 N. Avers Ave.). It's a beautiful neighborhood, a lovely park & field house. Nice big room with a screen for the projecting & a piano for the playing.
We will continue/begin our exploration of irony &: sarcasm in poetry. BRING IRONIC POEMS! BRING SARCASTIC POEMS! Your own & those by others. We are making a collection.
We may also begin to edit, or at least think about, the texts we gathered at the truly lovely reunion/writing at the movies event last Tuesday.
We may also make music; last time, we ended up in an extended jam session. That often happens when the Borderbend Arts Collective is around. So please feel free to BRING MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS.
See you at the Next Objectivists!
Because you never know what's coming next. . .
