Since the 1989 MLA convention, organizers in host cities have brought together ever larger groups of experimental and innovative poets for an evening marathon of poetry performance. These readings bring local poets into contact with poets from other cities and promote exchange among poets, scholars, and poet-scholars. This event will offer short readings by poets, including several who read at the first event twenty years ago and several newer poets.
