Title: London Open Mic: 2nd Episode of Couplets: Poets in Dialogue
Date: June 24, 2016
Location: London, Ontario, Canada
Description: Each episode of Couplets: Poets in Dialogue features a pair of poets who write in London, Ontario, and the surrounding region: an established ‘anchor’ poet and a younger or earlier-career ‘wildcard’ poet. A month in advance, the anchor and wildcard poets begin collaborating on an evening of alternating readings, response poems, duets, live interview, writing exercises, arguments, and general poetic tennis (net optional). Their episode is the culmination of this collaboration, a unique, bespoke performance sparking in the gap between two poets.
This episode features poets Andreas Gripp and Koral Scott.
