Best Poetry Series

i.e. Reading Series

Posted 9/19/2007

Michael Ball's i.e. reading series moved from Clayton Fine Books to Dionysus in the summer of 2006, and over the past year it has brought numerous noteworthy, high-profile language, flarf, and otherwise avant-garde poets to Baltimore., including Rod Smith, Chris Nealon, CA Conrad, Rachel DePlessis, Phyllis Rosenzweig, Jessica Grim, and M. Magnus, alongside locals Daniel Higgs, Chris Toll, and David Franks. In January the series held a memorial for poet Kari Edwards, who passed away last December, and this sustained level of activity has given the city a place in underground/academic poetry circles. The series moved again at the beginning of this month, to a lower Charles Village carriage house, to accommodate its growing audience.
