Please join the Next Objectivists this summer as we continue to chart a poetics of the outsidereal by reading, writing, discussing & eating & drinking our way through a variety of texts. Our workshop is 100% autonomous & constantly in flux; however, from time to time our collective semi-consciousness manifests itself as a semi-coherent schedule. Now is one of those times. Take advantage of it & join us for a summer program that vacillates between close readings of modernist literary classics, like Joyce’s Ulysses & Zukofsky’s “A” & discussions of contemporary artists & critical themes. In each case, we’ll read together, write together, & use these texts to further our understanding of radical approaches to poetry & poetics.
All workshops are free & open to the public. Workshops begin in proximity to 7:00 pm on Thursday at the Mess Hall in Rogers Park. The Mess Hall is located at 6932 N. Glenwood Avenue, just a few stops from the Morse street Red Line stop.
More information can be found on the Mess Hall website (www.messhall.org).
