The intersection of place, identity, and desire is reflected in the lush language we use and the stories we tell. Through readings and conversation, we will explore these lyric intersections from a variety of angles with five acclaimed poets from Bull City Press. Come here poets from across the states read about hopping trains in the Pacific Northwest, exorcisms in the Bible Belt, hearing a call to prayer in Tunisia, watching a lover kill a bug, and lamenting over old photographs with “lavender nostalgia.”
Bull City Press was born in 2006. They currently publish a small quarterly magazine, Inch, and poetry chapbooks through the Frost Place Chapbook Competition.
Books will be available for purchase.
