Close Readings in a Virtual Space: Farnoosh Fathi
This free, participatory event (taking place via Zoom) features Farnoosh Fathi, one of our favorite poets, leading an intimate, virtual group reading-through/thinking through of a single poem . Neither explicitly teaching nor explaining, our special guest poet will serve as your expert tour-guide to explore this featured poem as a group.
Whether already well-versed in the “close reading” of poems or having never been quite sure you’ve been “getting it,” CLOSE READINGS IN A VIRTUAL SPACE provides a digital gathering for taking a refreshing deep dive into poetry.
Actively participate or simply listen and learn!
The event will last about an hour and conclude with a brief reading of poetry by our special guest poet.
Farnoosh Fathi is the author of Great Guns (Canarium, 2013), editor of Joan Murray: Drafts, Fragments, and Poems (NYRB Poets, 2018) and founder of the Young Artists Language and Devotion Alliance (YALDA). She lives in New York and has taught at The Poetry Project, Poets House, Columbia University, Barnard College and Stanford Online High School.
