KRISTIN PREVALLET
CRAFT TALK
deerhunter2

During literary readings, there often exists a moment of curiosity, often after a fascinating preface to a work, in which one wants to stop a writer and ask how ? what ? why? A Craft Talk is a forum that anticipates this impulse. It expands the possibility and deepens the discourse of a typical reading by focusing on the writer’s concerns as well as the elements of craft that inform and form a final work. Writers will engage ideas of genesis, research, practice, activism and more in, around and throughout the reading of a few key pieces of creative work.

For many years, Kristin Prevallet’s performance and literary projects have dwelt in the periphery of language’s simultaneous failure and ability to transform social and political traumas into logocentric sites of healing and epiphany. We are thrilled to present this craft presentation of her most recent work, ” For He Who Will Never Know How Pornography Kills The False Woman and Prevents the Live One From Breathing”: an image and text interactive philosophical confession.

Kristin Prevallet is the author of five books of conceptual essay poetics, including most recently, Everywhere Here and in Brooklyn (A Four Quartets), (Belladonna Collaborative, 2012). She edited A Helen Adam Reader (National Poetry Foundation, 2007) and is on the faculty of Bard College’s Institute for Writing and Thinking. A 2015 writer-in-residence at Spalding University, she also works as a hypnotherapist and hypnosis trainer with a private practice in Westchester, NY. She maintains a blog at www.trancepoetics.com.

A free e-chapbook of the same name and published by Essay Press is available here: http://www.essaypress.org/ep-16/
