The third edition of @SEA, a new monthly series at the Poetic Research Bureau, takes place this Sunday afternoon, December 6th.

Participants:

Solomon Turner is an LA based filmmaker. He received his MFA in Film/Video from California Institute of the Arts and his BA in Cinema Studies from Oberlin College. He is obsessed with thinking about the future, technology and life on on other planets.

Linda Norton’s debut collection of poetry and prose, The Public Gardens: Poems and History (2011, Pressed Wafer), featuring an introduction by Fanny Howe, was a finalist for an LA Times Book Prize and was also a Kenyon Review notable book in 2012. Norton in also the author of a chapbook, Hesitation Kit (EtherDome, 2007) and is the recipient of a 2014 Creative Work Fund grant for a project about incarceration, poetry, and visual art. Her work has been featured in the anthologies New California Writing; Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here; and As If It Fell from the Sun. Norton’s visual collages have appeared on the covers of books by Julie Carr, Claudia Rankine, and Stacy Szymaszek, in a recent issue of Lapham's Quarterly, and on the cover of the anthology As If It Fell from the Sun. Her series of 48 collages (called Dark White) was exhibited in 2014 at the Dock in Carrick-on-Shannon, Ireland, with subsidy from the US Embassy in Dublin. In 2015 she visited Ireland again, where she worked on a memoir and cultural history called Dark White. She is currently completing a manuscript of poems called COLORATURA

Jeff Solomon’s first book, Fabulous Potency: Truman Capote and Gertrude Stein is forthcoming from the University of Minnesota Press in 2016.  His article “Capote and the Trillings: Homophobia and Literary Culture at Mid-Century” won the 2009 Andrew J. Kappel Prize for Best Article of the Year in Twentieth-Century Literature, and his short story “Best Friend” was the lead story in Best Gay Stories 2009 [Lethe Press].  He holds an M.F.A. in fiction from UC-Irvine and a doctorate in English from the University of Southern California, where he is a Lecturer. Solomon will discuss early mass-market portraits of Truman Capote, and how these both broadcast his homosexuality and shielded him from the homophobia that hurt the careers of other gay male mid-century writers.

Nora Sweeney is a documentary filmmaker and photographer based in Los Angeles. Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, she received her B.A. from Oberlin College and M.F.A. in Film/Video from CalArts. She taught documentary filmmaking and photography for two years at a women's college in Madurai, India through a fellowship from Oberlin Shansi. She continues to teach filmmaking in youth media education programs as well as work as a photographer, videographer, and editor. Her films have been screened at REDCAT (Los Angeles), Antimatter (Victoria), Chicago Underground Film Festival, Milwaukee Underground Film Festival, Athens International Film + Video Festival, and in the Black Maria Film and Video Festival, where Something Like Whales won a Jury's Choice Award (1st Prize).
