CLOSE READINGS IN A VIRTUAL SPACE with Paolo Javier: FREE online poetry workshop
CLOSE READINGS IN A VIRTUAL SPACE: with Paolo Javier
Paolo Javier leads a group thinking-and-reading-through of a poem by John Ashbery followed by a short reading of his own work.
This free, participatory event (taking place via Zoom) features Paolo Javier, one of our favorite poets, leading an intimate, virtual group thinking-and-reading-through of “Riddle Me” by John Ashbery. 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.
