You are invited to an evening of poetry and prose. Houston-based authors and poets share new works inspired by the exhibition A Counting, the work of conceptual artist Ekene Ijeoma and his group Poetic Justice at MIT Media Lab. For the participants that would like to be a featured reader at the Reading, they can submit their work to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on Saturday, November 7, 2020. Works must be one page or less and must respond to the artworks in the Beyond CAMH exhibition A Counting. Submissions are judged by Mary Wemple and a guest judge. Featured readers will be announced on Friday, November 13, 2020. It is not required to attend the workshop in order to submit writing to be a featured reader.
The program will be held virtually and uses a participatory online art project as inspiration. This event is free. Pre-registration required.
