Poetry Project/Coach House Release: Prismatic Publics

Wednesday (September 23), The Poetry Project kicks off its fall season with some innovative poets from north of the border.

The Project is helping Coach House Books launch its new anthology of experimental Canadian female poets, Prismatic Publics. The event will feature readings from Nicole Brossard, Margaret Christakos and Catriona Strang, as well as an introduction from anthology co-editor Kate Eichhorn. Several other writers featured in the anthology may also be in attendance, as the launch will serve as a perfect unofficial pre-party for the Advancing Feminist Poetics & Activism conference (at the CUNY Graduate Center).
