Manifest 2010

Columbia College's urban arts festival, Manifest, starts May 14 on Columbia's Loop campus. It will feature graduate and undergraduate poetry showcases, a creative nonfiction showcase, and readings from Columbia's fiction writers. It's free and open to the public, so check out the schedule of events here. This year, the festival will include the Po-Tent (at Balbo and Wabash): Columbia poetry students at typewriters will create verses right in front of you, and/or you can use provided materials to compose your own found poems. You may even get to meet Allen Ginsberg or Alexander Pope! Or...their impersonators.
