CA Conrad (Soma)tic Poetry Workshop
(Soma)tic Cartographies Workshop
(Soma)tic poetry rituals create what we can refer to as an "extreme present" set to reveal the creative viability of everything around us. At our LETTERS FESTIVAL workshop we will find the poems in notes from maps we draw, maps of each other, veins of the room, the street to El Dorado, a chanting, a flow of sap and thoughts inside a tree, a pen or pencil infused with one inexplicably beautiful day. The map and the poem have endless possibilities! For a recent example "Ant Cartography," go to this link: http://somaticpoetryexercises.blogspot.com/2014/02/98-ant-cartography.html
With (Soma)tics we will learn how even in crisis we can thrive through the poems, as well as learn to collaborate in unexpected ways with other artistic disciplines. Soon we'll all agree with Alice Notley saying, "poetry's so common hardly anyone can find it."
