Poet CAConrad has successfully used (Soma)tic poetry rituals to overcome depression after the murder of his boyfriend Earth. He 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. The workshop will create a ritual together that we will all be able to do inside our lives to be writing in the daily magic!

About the poet: CAConrad is the author of 9 books of poetry and essays and the latest is titled While Standing In Line For Death from Wave Books (2017). He is a Pew Fellow and has also received fellowships from Lannan Foundation, MacDowell Colony, Headlands Center for the Arts, Banff, RADAR, Flying Ojbect and Ucross.
