In this workshop we'll address the looming issue of what it means to be a hominid writer in the age of hominid extinction. We'll look at texts by CA Conrad, Anne Waldman, Lorine Niedecker, Alexandra Nemerov, and Brenda Coultas, and will write about our place in the ecosystem (feel free to bring inventories of what you consume and own, concerns about your environment, or even a bag of garbage to turn into art).  

 

Lisa Jarnot will also give a reading at 7 pm on Saturday, May 16. The reading is FREE for workshop participants. 

 

We're offering a discounted price for registration in both of our May workshops - Lisa Jarnot's Poetry and Politics Revisited and CAConrad's Woodland Crystal: A (Soma)tic Poetry Workshop - with the 'Dual Workshop' option below. This includes FREE admission to both Lisa Jarnot's and CAConrad's readings.
