Second Life Poetry Reading

Kate Thorpe, a first-year poet in the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, will read current works in progress from an untitled, newly-developing project. The project in particular addresses questions of bridging or extending distance—historical, linguistic, textual, and geographical—looking especially at the role of letters in creating or bridging distance. The project also concerns a poetic character named “Horatio” who is somehow implicated in the act of composing or receiving letters. As a Connecticut Student Poet during her senior year at Wesleyan University, Kate gave readings of her work at Connecticut colleges and universities such as Trinity College, Yale University, and Wesleyan.

The reading will be followed by Q & A with the poet. Additionally, you will be able to tour our new building and get a few goodies in the process (go-karts, motorcycles, and toy rockets, oh my!) See you there, and don’t forget to keep an eye out for future events – a concert by the Maia Quartet [ ] is in the works!
