Given Olson's statement in "The Maximus Poems"--"an actual earth of value
to / construct one"--the Charles Olson Society seeks proposals from
emerging poets currently engaging specific elements of Olson's poetics,
such as use, measure, breath, line, sound, and speech. Proposals should
address the direct relations between the poet-writer's developing poetics
and Olson's prose or poetry--and how such a relation to Olson still
projects itself, still figures, now, 38 years after his death.

250-word proposals should be sent to Gary Grieve-Carlson of The Charles
Olson Society at by December 15, 2008. Please include
your name, institutional affiliation (if any), e-mail address, and AV
needs (if any). American Literature Assoc., Boston, May 21-24, 2009.
