Zachary Schomburg: Reading

October 22 Thursday
@ Norlin Library, CU Boulder

Join the CU Boulder English Department’s Creative Writing Reading series for a reading by poet Zachary Schomburg.

Schomburg’s books of poetry include The Man Suit(2007), Scary, No Scary (2009), and Fjords vol 1 (2012). He has said of his work, which is known for its absurd, tender humor, “Mostly I want my poems to generate their own energy through confusion. I want my poems to confuse the reader. Not a confusion in a cognitive or narrative sense, but in an emotional sense.” Schomburg co-edits Octopus Books and lives in Portland, Oregon.

October 22, 2015, 7:30 PM, Center for British and Irish Studies (CBIS), M549, Norlin Library, CU Boulder.
