Films by and about writers starts today at Guild. See poets move from page and stage to the silver screen in WORD! ~ billed by Poets & Songwriters Movie Program as "films by and about writers"
WORD! features full-length films on Carl Sandburg, Amiri Baraka, Robert Creeley and more. And while no tribute to spoken word would be complete without a bit about Jack Kerouac or Allen Ginsberg (check), the program's short films also look at local poets such as Richard Vargas, Mary Oishi and Levi Romero.
See WORD! Monday, Nov. 9, through Wednesday, Nov. 11, at Guild Cinema (3405 Central NE). To check out a list of the movies, go to
