The CUNY Poetics Document Initiative is a publication project emerging from archival and textual scholarship done by students at The Graduate Center, with the primary focus on writers falling under the rubric of the New American Poetry. Since accessibility to archival material proposes alternative, divergent and enriched versions of literary and cultural history, the Initiative takes the New American rubric writ large, including the affiliated and unaffiliated, precursors and followers. The archive is not simply textual but living and guests for 2009-2010 include David Henderson, Margaret Randall and David Meltzer. Come celebrate the launch of our first series, including works by Amiri Baraka, Robert Creeley, Edward Dorn, Kenneth Koch, Muriel Rukeyser, and Philip Whalen.
