(Soma)tic Poetry Rituals
For two days we will build rituals together for writing, and discuss how the use of this practice can keep our artistic tools sharpened to witness the creative viability of the world around us.

CAConrad has successfully used (Soma)tic poetry rituals to overcome depression after the murder of their boyfriend Earth (aka Mark Holmes). CA has also created writing rituals using the night sky to design homemade star constellations, another ritual to experience what the impact of hearing the word “drone” has on the human body, and many others from talking with trees, ghosts, translating Shakespeare’s sonnets with crystals, and coping with the destroyed wilderness of our planet.
CAConrad is a 2019 Creative Capital Fellow, and the author of 9 books of poetry and essays. While Standing in Line for Death (Wave Books), received the 2018 Lambda Award. A recipient of a Pew Fellowship in the Arts, they also received The Believer Magazine Book Award and The Gil Ott Book Award.
