Seventh Cascadian Poetry Festival: Bioregional Typography

October 7, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Clearcutting of languages and cultures has been widespread in Cascadia, just like the clearcutting of forests. Even so, this remains a rich and highly varied landscape, geologically, biologically, and linguistically. Cascadian Zen: Bioregional Writings on Cascadia Here and Now is an anthology of pieces written and spoken in English, but many languages and writing systems are present in the text – mostly as placenames, personal names, references, and quotations. This will be a discussion between two poet/typographers: Theresa Whitehill (who designed the anthology) and Robert Bringhurst. It will start with some of the interesting problems that cropped up in setting volume 1 of the anthology and proceed to the wider context of polylingual typography in Cascadia in general.

The date for this talk is Saturday, October 7, 2023 1 PM; the venue will be announced and registrants will receive that information before the event. Cost will be $75.
