[dis]embodied poetics conference

I know I'm a bit late on this, but here's a brief report from the [Dis]embodied Poetics Conference: Writing/Thinking/Being. The conference was amazing, and it happily coincided with a philosophy conference that one of my friends was going, too. So in addition to conferencing, I went on a lovely road trip, read with HR Hegnauer (who is even more amazing in person) for the Bombay Gin Reading Series, spent some time exploring Boulder and Nederland, and a went on a gorgeous hike.  

The Jack Kerouac School is one of my favorite places on earth, and it was especially wonderful at the conference with so many poets visiting. Here's brief account of the panel I was on with Duriel Harris, Marthe Reed, and Lisa Samuels, and a few photos that I took from the trip:

A few photos from my recent trip to Colorado. The primary purpose for the trip was the JKS's [Dis]Embodied Poetics conference (which I will report on soon). I also spent a day hiking with my friend Sarah, who was in town for another conference.
