Maggie O'Sullivan

Maggie O'Sullivan will be reading at the Writers House on October 11. She will be joined by cris cheek and, after their reading, Charles Bernstein will moderate a discussion that will include the great collector and curator of concrete, visual and sound poetry Marvin Sacker, and Matthew Abess. It is Matt who has put all of this together--the culmination of two years' work on Bob Cobbing.

At left is a page from Maggie O'Sullivan's online work, "murmur", which is subtitled "tasks of mourning" and was created between 1999 and 2004.

O'Sullivan's PENNsound page features a 1993 reading at Buffalo, broken into individual mp3 file for each passage read, as well as a 34-minute interview with Charles Bernstein of the same date.
