Poets' Roundtable

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Modeled after a similar and very successful Roundtable event held recently at Bozeman’s Rialto Theater, this event will feature five poets from the Northwest reading poems on a variety of specific subjects (a few examples: mother figures, machines, bears, gardens) and conversing about their work. Attendees are invited to help select the subject of each round of poems. The Roundtable approach is less formal and more interactive than a conventional reading and provides a unique view of each poet’s voice and approach. The poets involved are diverse in gender, background, age, orientation, and poetic style.
