Frank O’Hara walked the streets of Manhattan on his lunch break, sometimes stopping to type the beginning of a poem at the Olivetti showroom, which eventually brought about Lunch Poems. We will read and study the prose and poetry of place and then experiment with gathering sounds, words, and images from the streets and city around us via walking observation. Through writing prompts and exploration, we will write the poetry of the everyday.
Rachel Kessler explores landscape and community through writing and multi-disciplinary collaboration. Co-founder of Typing Explosion and Vis-à-Vis Society, their book of collaborative poems, 100 Rooms, is forthcoming October 2019. She recently opened collective Wa Na Wari, a center for Black art in the CD, and is Artist-In-Residence at public housing project Yesler Terrace.
