"Experimental Poetics in Contemporary Chicago: Poetry and Theory."
Chicago is in the midst of a renaissance in experimental poetry.
Interesting reading series have been established; presses, both online
and print, have been started; and experimental poets in Chicago are
attracting national and international attention with a flurry of new
works. To highlight these regional events, this panel will present a mix
of poetic and theoretical presentations. The presentations will include
discussions of individual poet's works, explorations of the experimental
practices being employed by regional writers, and presentations of new
poetry by the poets. William Allegrezza, Indiana University Northwest,
Dept. of English,
