CLOSE READINGS IN A VIRTUAL SPACE: with Bianca Stone

This free, participatory event (taking place via Zoom) features Bianca Stone , one of Flow Chart’s favorite poets, leading an intimate, virtual group thinking-and-reading-through of “Ghazal” by Larry Levis. 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.
