          at Betalevel and Center for the Arts Eagle Rock

          LA-Lit celebrated its three year anniversary on Friday, November 21 at Betalevel and on Saturday November 22 at Center for the Arts Eagle Rock. For over three years, LA-Lit has developed a new space for the literary culture of Los Angeles to develop and exhibit itself. Reflecting the shifting nature of Los Angeles, LA-Lit has conducted well over thirty interviews with poets and writers who have lived in LA all their lives as well as writers who have visited LA for only a few days. Please join us for LA-Lit: Clouds :: a two day conference in Los Angeles connecting the de-centered literary culture of LA in an effort to investigate it’s current manifestations and to develop a sense of LA’s inherent literary spontaneity.
