I’ll be at AWP in Minneapolis this week, participating in a panel with other authors in the Marie Alexander Series on hybridity in the Midwest.
R145. Flat Lands and Open Waters: Reading Hybridity into the Midwest
Room 211 A&B, Level 2
Thursday, April 9, 2015
10:30 am to 11:45 am
The paradigm of form has shifted to include hybrid works such as the poem novella, the lyric essay, the prose poem, and flash nonfiction. How do the challenges and rewards of living in the flatlands yield to a fluidity and hybridity in writing? These Midwestern authors, all published by the White Pine Press Marie Alexander series featuring prose poem and hybrid forms, will read work and discuss the confluence of aesthetics between living/writing from the midlands and having an openness to form.
