a reading eXperiment
AWP 2015 Minneapolis
The Festival of Language will present a reading eXperiment as an offsite at the annual AWP conference in 2015 in Minneapolis.
This year’s event will take place in the Rochester room at the Hilton Minneapolis, 1001 Marquette Avenue, Minneapolis on Thursday, April 9th, 2015 from 6:00 p.m.—8:00 p.m.
This event is an eXperiment in the reading of original creative works as juxtaposed against expectations, perceptions, other creative works, and audience members. Readers will be the front person, play backup to, and read in conjunction with others (among other things) in eXperiments that challenge the way readers and audience members think about performances of original creative works. Neither readers nor audience members will know what to expect ahead of time. Audience members should feel free to bring work, as audience participation is encouraged in some experiments.
