Exhibit featuring Lorene Delany-Ullman


TAB poet Lorene Delany-Ullman and artist Jody Servon are exhibiting “Saved: Objects of the Dead” at the Viewpoint Gallery at the University of California, Irvine, through February 17. This photography-poetry collaboration “Our project documents the lives, deaths and relationships of individuals whose objects are imbued with their emotional and physical senses, then saved by loved ones and friends as an affirmation of their love,” Servon told the LA Times.

Read two of Delany-Ullman’s poems and a review of her book Camouflage for the Neighborhood in Volume 2 of TAB. Her work also appeared in the print issues in 2015 and the Current Issue.

TAB re-launches in 2020

In January 2020, TAB is re-launching with this new website, newly accessible issue archives, and a Submittable portal.

TAB: The Journal of Poetry & Poetics started in 2013 as a collaboration between poet and essayist Anna Leahy and informational designer Claudine Jaenichen. You can find out more about the project and the staff on the About pages of the website.

The relationship of design and text has driven this project from the get-go and continues to shape how TAB creates a distinctive reading experience. We recognize that print and online formats work differently.

In our print issues, we have consciously used design to make readers aware of the materiality of text and the challenges of access. Our January 2020 print issue, however, explores issues of accessibility. In addition, the TAB archives have been updated for increased accessibility. The new TAB website (using an accessibility-ready theme) will change the look and feel of our online issues. TAB welcomes new design constraints and opportunities, for reading is always a designed experience. We urge you to read more about how design drives TAB in our Design Statement.

On December 9, 2019, Tabula Poetica celebrated its 10th anniversary with a reading by more than a dozen poets at Chapman University. Read more about this events at the Los Angeles Times. The Tabula Poetica reading series occurs every fall, with talks and readings by visiting poets and a reading by MFA in Creative Writing students. We look forward to the next decade of varied poetic voices and perspectives as part of the Chapman Experience.
