Topic: Facing It: Memory, Melancholia and Waking. It is a horrible prospect for anyone to live just for the sake of remembering the dead. “- Avishai Margalit.
We’ll explore the terrains of memory and melancholia, navigating the ways we use, submit to, and wrangle language as a means of seeing through, becoming something new/else in the “after”. 

Drop in, have poems critiqued, and participate in an ongoing discussion of poetry and poetics. Sessions are free* and no registration is required.

Bring 15 or more copies (2 page limit) of a poem you want critiqued.

This project is partially supported by grants from: Poets & Writers, the Illinois Arts Council and The MacArthur Fund for Arts and Culture at the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
