For over 35 years SPT has been at the heart of where experimentation and community intersect. This season we continue to present a multi-pronged conversation that highlights some of the concerns of our readers’ work. These conversations include: bodies, communities and empires. Dialogues are intended to engender discussions around the themes of bodies, communities, and empires, putting each reader's writing into broader contexts and ongoing debates around poetics, politics, and practice.

Evelyn Reilly’s most recent book is Styrofoam. She is currently working on Material Science, an exploration of the language of siteless architectural forms. Other works include Fervent Remnants of Reflective Surfaces and Hiatus. Find examples of her work here and here .
And more information about Evelyn on her website.

Angela Carr is a poet and translator who lives in Montréal. Her books include The Rose Concordance, Ropewalk, and Risk Accretions, part of a set of chapbooks called Handwerk.
Find examples of her work here and an interview with her here.
Find an audio sample of her work in textsound here.

There is no better time to become a member of SPT. As we push to make it through another year with its own set of unique funding challenges, and hear of a different arts organization each day that closes its doors, we are heartened by the fact that it is our community that will sustain us.

If you value SPT and the incredible writers we showcase, show your support by becoming a member (or, if you already are, by making an additional donation) today.

See you there!
