March 24. Frostic Reading at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. I am looking forward to reading on campus with Adam LaFevre and hanging out with wonderful New Issues friends. Bernhard Center room 157-159 from 8pm.
February 28, Bagley Wright Lecture on Poetry at Hugo House in Seattle, Washington. I will give a public lecture titled “From Haiku to Collage: A Body-Based Poetics” where I discuss Basho’s teachings on poetry and my attempts to cultivate a poetic practice following his advice.
February 18, Marin Poetry Center, San Rafael, California. This will be my first time reading with Gillian Conoley, a poet I greatly admire. The last time we were on stage together, I was on the blue team at the Poetry World Series and she was a judge. The reading starts at 7:30pm.
February 4, Lunch Poems in the Doe Library at University of California, Berkeley. I’m delighted to be reading in this noon hour series.
