F259. Serial Killers: How to Survive the Series Poem
Room 510, LA Convention Center, Meeting Room Level
Friday, April 1, 2016, 3:00 pm to 4:15 pm

This panel explores the dangers and allure of the serial poem. Panelists offer insight into the types of poems included in successful series, share the processes and challenges involved in creating their own series, and look at the recent resurgence of the series poem. From series that reconstruct history to series that engage folklore to series that center on a modal unity like elegy or ekphrasis, panelists share best practices to help others build their serial m.o.

With Cynthia Marie Hoffman, John A. Nieves, Alexandra Teague, Kathryn Nuernberger, and Nicky Beer.
