Transparency Machine with Louis Cabri


a homecoming edition of 


with Louis Cabri 

The A B Series is delighted to present a homecoming edition of The Transparency Machine with Louis Cabri. During the late 1980's and early 1990's, Cabri organized the Experimental Writing Group in Ottawa with Rob Manery. They produced literary events that included The Transparency Machine reading series, then held at Gallery 101. Together, they published hole magazine and chapbook series.

The Transparency Machine is an event in which a poet is asked to give a reading from his or her work, and create, for that reading, a textual collage (of quotations and images) through which to talk about poetry. Pre-readings for Louis Cabri's October 30, 2010 Transparency Machine event have been posted to The A B Series web site.

Louis Cabri is author of —that can’t (Nomados) and The Mood Embosser (Coach House Books). He teaches modern and contemporary poetry, literary theory, and creative writing at the University of Windsor. Wrinkle Press recently published his leaflet What is Venice? (illustrated by Tim de Vries). His new book, Poetryworld, is being published this fall by Capilano University Editions.
