CUNY Chapbook Festival, Part 2: Panel and Readings Online

Process & Collaboration: Designing Poetry Chapbooks in the Book Arts

Photo credit: Echosistemas (2020). Poems by Katerina Ramos Jordan. Designed and assembled by Erika Morillo, with printing assistance by Matthew Collins. 

Join us for an in-depth conversation led by three Book Artists with distinct practices, who will discuss their experiences designing and collaborating with poets on hand-produced limited edition chapbooks and other literary objects. CBA’s Programs Manager, Jenna Hamed will moderate this conversation with Aurora De Armendi, Erika Morillo, & Faride Mereb.

For nearly 50 years, Center for Book Arts has been supporting artists and book arts by presenting exhibitions, lectures, readings, and performances; providing opportunities for artists, writers, curators, and scholars through residencies. Their annual chapbook contest has been an elegant gateway for numerous emerging poets.

City University of New York MFA Reading: Four CUNY alumni read from their chapbooks. Featuring Dudgrick Bevins (City College), Charles Theonia (Brooklyn College), Jiordan Castle (Hunter College) and Leila Ortiz (Queens College)
