Talk, Friday, March 11, 2011, 7:30PM, venue TBA:

Descent Beckons

Composer/multi-instrumentalist N. writes in Bedouin Hornbook, “What I’m proposing is that we hear into what has up to now only been overheard (if I can put it that way), that we can awaken resources whereby, for example, assent can be heard to carry undertones or echoes of ascent (accents of ascent).”  This talk will say the same of dissent and descent.

Workshop, Saturday, March 12, 2011, 1-4P @ SPLAB: Participants will bring poems for presentation and discussion.  Each participant’s work will be discussed and each participant will take part in discussion of the work of other participants. Space for the workshop is limited and can be reserved for $75 by emailing or calling Paul Nelson at (206)422.5002.

Sponsored by 4Culture, Poets and Writers, Richard Hugo House, CD Forum, The Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs and WESTAF.
