CAConrad will create a (Soma)tic Poetry Ritual for KLASSENSPRACHEN at Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen based on the work of Ian Wilson. For the two-day workshop he will use handmade maps to study the many aspects of our planet’s directional points. He will use these references to explore life and death, as the known and the unknown forces of our world and how these directional archetypes help and hinder our lives. This is a love letter to the Future Wilderness of our world. Read his (Soma)tic Manifesto at this link: http://bit.ly/2yYajhj

CAConrad is the author of nine books of poetry and essays; the latest While Standing in Line for Death (Wave Books, 2017), which includes the poems from Width of a Witch, and Mount Monadnock Transmissions (Sharking of the Birdcage) both published by Jason Dodge’s poetry press 500places. He has received fellowships from The Pew Foundation, Lannan Foundation, MadDowell Colony, Headlands Center fro the Arts, and Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity.
