Mile End Poets’ Festival – Deep Curation: Experiments in Poetry Reading Curation

November 7, 2019, 1:00 PM5:30 PM EST

Opening with a panel discussion on literary event curation, this event will feature Margaret Christakos, Deanna Radford, Danielle St. Amour and Jason Camlot, facilitated by Klara du Plessis. It will focus on different contemporary and historical strategies for literary event curation, while also incorporating a visual arts curatorial perspective for the inclusion of textual and audiotextual material in gallery spaces.

Next, a Deep Curation workshop will offer a playful opportunity for participants to create and perform short, experimental and interwoven poetic readings. Finally, a Deep Curation reading, curated by Klara du Plessis, and featuring Margaret Christakos, Kaie Kellough, and Deanna Radford will place poets’ work in deliberate dialogue with one another. This experimental approach to literary event organization heightens the curator’s agency toward the poetic product.
