Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to showcase poetry comics (in FRAMES) at a lovely little studio space in Georgetown, WA, alongside Bianca Stone, Catherine Bresner, Colleen Louise Barry, Ted Powers, and Aidan Fitzgerald. As if that wasn't awesome enough, I also got to read poems while sitting in an old-fashioned school desk made for children. Big thanks to Mount Analog for organizing this, and for all the friends (and strangers) who made the trek out into the drizzle
Last Friday, I had the immense pleasure of attending Claudia Rankine's SAL lecture. As if that wasn't awesome enough, I also got to take a picture with her (!!!) and publish this response on the Seattle Arts and Lectures blog. Doodles happened. Things got collage-y. I owe so much to Claudia Rankine, Citizen, The Racial Imaginary anthology, her interviews, and the myriad conversations, both online and in person, her work has inspired.
