The 4th European Beat Studies Network is happening in Brussels 28-31 Oct and as reported before, I will be attending and presenting. My talk is:
Anne WALDMAN (poet/performer, author of 40+ books of poetry, co-founder w/ Allen Ginsberg of the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa U.) & Daniel KANE (professor at U of Sussex and author, amongst others, of All Poets Welcome: The Lower East Side Poetry Scene in the 1960s)

to me, mackay.p, p.mackay, oliverharris
With 31 days to go till the start of the Conference, I am now finalizing the programme for good and making the very last few adjustments to it, including the addition of session chairs.
In view of your own poetic work, and in view of your very long experience in interviewing and working with poets, the EBSN and I were wondering whether you would do us both the favour and honour of acting as “Master of Ceremonies” for the Poetry Jam “All Poets Welcome”, which will follow the evening reception on Wednesday evening, 28 October.
So may we put on the programme of the first evening:
19.00-20.00 Welcoming Reception & Jazz Band
20.00- POETRY JAM: “All Poets Welcome”
to whenever (Master of Ceremonies: Paul NELSON)
your poetic energies
Many thanks in advance for letting us know whether this would appeal + with very best Beat wishes from
