Towards a Safer Reading

The Rah! Rah! Roundup has an overview of a conversation that began recently at the Poetry Project in New York City. The Poetry Project hosted a panel discussion . The topic was “What is a reading? What should it be? What is read there? And to whom?” During the discussion of literary readings, their culture, etc., poet Eileen Myles described “personal instances of assault and harassment,” according to one of the other panelists, Jennifer Tamayo.
