ART, POETRY, & PROJECTS
Outside of my academic research, I am a writer of creative non-fiction and poetry.
I am an alumna of VONA/Voices and the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University Summer Writing Programs, wherein I received the Zora Neale Herston Scholarship (2016) and the Amiri Baraka Scholarship (2017).
Contributor for Julie Carr's Real Life: An Installation (Omnidawn Press), 2018. Art Installation 17.
My projects include the launch of an Art Saloon project in Boulder (2017), and collaborating as host to the well-established Bouldering Poets, in Colorado.
Cast as “The Living Room Series,” the Art Saloon considered a theme for a night to showcase live poetry readings, performances, music, and art displayed throughout the home of a community member.
The Art Saloon was conceived as a way through which to make of our living spaces, breathing public art forums for interaction and AWE (adventure, wonder, and exploration)— for both affective circuits, intellectual ones, and those beyond articulation.
