Poet's Panel: Is This Surreal or For Real?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this panel, writers Michael Earl Craig, Hajara Quinn, Adrian Kien and Jeff Alessandrelli will discuss how they shape daily (sometimes mundane) life into something beyond the everyday. The panelists will briefly read from their own work, then discuss both it and surreal-or-for-real examples from other writers.
