ModPo update for Tuesday of week 7 (2018)
Here we are, Tuesday of week 7. We’re getting into a sampling of the poems of the New York School.
Yesterday a group of us spent some time talking about Bernadette Mayer’s “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” This poem is worth your time! And, at least in the northern hemisphere, it’s appropriate for the season! LISTEN to Bernadette perform the poem HERE. And read it HERE. Watch us discuss it HERE. And join others to discuss it HERE.
Did you know that Bernadette Mayer spent some days with us last spring as a “Kelly Writers House Fellow”? What amazing fun we had. She’s a completely remarkable person. You can listen to or watch the two public sessions we convened during her visit, including a one-hour interview/conversation I moderated.
If you are planning to write in response to essay assignment #3, please go HERE to find the assignment and HERE to post your essay. Whether it is your aim to earn a ModPo certificate or not (most folks are not seeking such a thing), we hope you’ll consider writing about this Eileen Myles poem! You can be sure you will receive thoughtful comments on your writing. Try it!
Tomorrow’s (Wednesday’s) webcast will take place at 9 PM. Tomorrow, I’ll send out all the info you’ll need to participate
