Cultural Writing. Poetry. Essays. THE BACK ROOM is an occasional series of presentations/symposia/bacchanals in Portland, Oregon, replete with food, drink, music, and general boisterousness garlanding the central pleasure of bright intellects voicing their excellent texts, winging it in conversation, and screening or presenting various textual and visual delights. Including work by Dodie Bellamy, Kevin Killian, Moira Roth, Lisa Robertson, and many more. This collection is meant to inspire and inform copycat efforts in other cities.
