Add to Cal
The Caltech Poetry Club meets every Friday from 4:30 to 6 PM at tables by the Red Door Cafe. Bring 10 copies of your own poem if possible, for sharing and discussion. Or just listen and enjoy the poetic conversation. New members welcome! Join in with the Red Door Poets: The most dynamic poetry center in the scientific world! We always read poems by other contemporary and historical poets. Topics have included Wallace Stevens, William Butler Yeats, the Korean Sijo tradition, Mel Weisburd, M. Kei Neil McCarthy, Pabo Neruda, William O'Daly, Denise Levertov. We also schedule writing sessions and readings at inspiring spots on our beautiful campus. We've shared poetry inspired by scientific lectures at Caltech. We performed 2010 for the Caltech Center for Diversity, "A World Tour of Women". Each year we create the Caltech Poetry Journal for live performance with music and dance, As science steps out on the edge of knowledge and discovery, so do the poets walk into the unknown with their words. Look for Kathabela's flowery hat to identify the group table.
