CAConrad, Machine Project's poet-in-residence for the week, will read from his latest collection of poems, A Beautiful Marsupial Afternoon.
He describes his work on the Machine Project website:
Experiences that are unorthodox steps in the writing process which can shift the poet's perception of the quotidian, if only for a series of moments ... The aim of (Soma)tic poetry and poetics is the realization of two basic ideas: (1) Everything around us has a creative viability with the potential to spur new modes of thought and imaginative output. (2) The most vital ingredient to bringing sustainable, humane changes to our world is creativity. This can be enacted on a daily basis.CAConrad will also lead a poetry workshop on Saturday, Nov. 17.
