Next Objectivists Poetry Workshops

The Next Objectivists are "a free school of poets and critics pursuing the techniques of writing poetry from outside the self" (think William Carlos Williams, not Ayn Rand). They meet the second and fourth Thursday of every month in Rogers Park. Tonight, their workshop will be held in conjunction with the Red Rover Reading Series as the Chicago Durutti Skool 2011, part of a nationwide series of workshops examining poetry as a catalyst for social change (yes, that means Marxism and anarchism). On Friday, the Chicago Durutti Skool continues with readings and discussions with
Frank Rogaczewski and Michelle Taransky at Outer Space Studio. Thursday, May 5 workshop: Mess Hall, 6932 N. Glenwood Ave., 7-9pm. Beginners always welcome; download free stories for discussion here. Friday, May 6 workshop: Outer Space Studio, 1474 N. Milwaukee Ave., 7-9pm.
