Witness the Matrix of Technology and Writing at Notes from the Mainframe

This Wednesday, Jan. 29, the Guild Literary Complex hosts the first of a two-part series, Applied Words: Notes from the Mainframe, at FreeGeek Chicago, 3411 W. Diversey.

The series, which invites writers employed in technology to read their work and discuss the interplay between creative writing and art and science, will include readings from the director of digital programs at Poetry Foundation, Catherine Halley; executive director of Smart Chicago Collaborative, Daniel X. O'Neil; and the founder of Chicago Literary Map, Stephanie Plenner. Readings will be book-ended by a warm-up open mic and a post-reading Q&A.

Applied Words: Notes from the Mainframe is co-sponsored by FreeGeek Chicago and us here at Gapers Block. Our co-founder and editor Andrew Huff will host the event, sharing a few technology-themed haiku poems.

The second part of this series, curated by Dr. Stephanie Levi, founder of Science is Sexy, will be scheduled in March.
