Past leaders and readers and all poets welcome. Drop in, have poems critiqued, and participate in an ongoing discussion of poetry and poetics. Sessions are free* and no registration is required.

Alice George’s first collection of poetry was published in 2008: This Must Be The Place (Mayapple Press). Her poetry and prose has appeared in such magazines as Field, Bellingham Review, Sentence, Denver Quarterly, Another Chicago Magazine, Quarter After Eight, New Orleans Review, American Literary Review, Seneca Review, and Diagram. Her work is anthologized in eight volumes, most recently: A Writers’ Congress: Chicago Poets on Barack Obama’s Inauguration (DePaul Humanities Center, 2009); Mentor & Muse: Essays from Poets to Poets (SIU Press, 2010); and ) and Brute Neighbors: urban poetry, prose and photography (DePaul, 2011). Painting is her next frontier; see images at www.alicegeorge.org.

Topic: The Nouny Place What Stephen Dunn’s “Loves” teaches us about list poems, abstraction vs. sensuality, and calculated abandon. We all write list poems (or we should), but there’s an art and science to the catalog poem. We’ll read part of this great poem out loud together, look under its hood, and then experiment with our pencils

Bring 18 – 20 copies of a poem (2 page limit) you want critiqued.*$5 – $10 donation appreciated.
