Close Readings in a Virtual Space: Kimberly Alidio on Mei-mei Berssenbrugge

This free, participatory workshop (taking place via Zoom) features Kimberly Alidio, one of The Flow Chart Foundation’s favorite poets, leading an intimate, virtual group reading-through/thinking through of Mei-Mei Berssenbrugge’s “Texas” 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.

Free registration at the link provided here.
