Jon Cotner and Andy Fitch

May 12, 2010 - 5:00pm
Prairie Lights

Jon Cotner and Andy Fitch will read from Ten Walks/Two Talks. Ten Walks/Two Talks updates the meandering and meditative form of Basho’s travel diaries. Mapping 21st-century New York, Cotner and Fitch tap their predecessor’s collaborative tendencies in order to construct a descriptive/dialogic fugue. The two have performed their improvisations at festivals and conferences across the United States, as well as in Toronto and Berlin. Iowa City poet Matthew Klane and non-fiction writer Amy Scott will join Cotner and Fitch in their performance at Prairie Lights. Jon Cotner lives in New York City, where he is finishing his Ph.D. for SUNY Buffalo’s Poetics Program. Andy Fitch is an assistant professor in the University of Wyoming’s MFA Program.
