Topics of discussion may include:
LA-Lit – is there one?
Is an identifiable literary community important to Los Angeles?
Have old structures of organization become useless to us?
– rhizomatic communities vs bureaucratic organiztion
What are specific methods that could be used to create/grow literary community?
What role can experimental poetics play in the creation of community?
Eccentric or outside, off-center… is there no center?
How to define our own ‘decentered’ spontaneous connectivity?
