Saturday, February 25: Ted Dodson & Mathew Timmons
The Poetic Research Bureau presents...
& MATHEW TIMMONS
Saturday, February 25 2017
Ted Dodson is the author of “At the National Monument / Always Today” (Pioneer Works, 2016). He works for BOMB, is the books editor for Futurepoem, and is a former editor of The Poetry Project Newsletter.
Mathew Timmons is the author of Terrifying Photo (Wonder 2015), Joyful Noise for three or more voices (Jaded Ibis, 2012), and The New Poetics (Les Figues, 2010). He is also the editor & publisher of Insert Blanc Press in Los Angeles, CA.
His current project, Encouraging Words, looks for spirited language in places near and far, obvious and obscure, and reframes that language to bring it into a performance and poetic context and reveal how even our most saccharine words can be both scary and energizing, or even encouraging.
Two works will be presented this evening: an Untitled Dialogue with Jay Erker and Ben White, and an Untitled Monologue.
