How Penn Is Going Virtual Within “Second Life”!

Here’s a fun new way Penn and its programs continue to advance…

This Thursday, October 29, (8 pm eastern time), Penn’s Kelly Writers House goes virtual …inside “Second Life”!

For this week’s seminar, KWH director Al Filreis will be discussing three poems, one each by Cid Corman, Ezra Pound and William Carlos Williams.

Check out the texts and (for two of the three) audio recordings of the poets reading their poems HERE +/-

When you arrive at the Second Life KWH, and come into the Arts Cafe (their main reading room) you’ll see chairs set up for us, and wall displays on which you’ll find the text of the poems.

  • For those who will want to actively participate, to gain access to this event please contact Deke Kassabian (vdeke at no later than noon today.

The Kelly Writers House always seemed ahead of the curve thanks to Al Filreis.  Check out this news segment with Al from back in 1999.
