CAConrad Visits UW

For those of you who don’t know, CAConrad describes himself as “the son of white trash asphyxiation whose childhood included selling cut flowers along the highway for his mother and helping her shoplift,” and we were lucky enough to have this incredible poet visit UW last week. His visit included a reading at Night Heron books where he read from his collection The Book of Frank, as well as his latest A Beautiful Marsupial Afternoon.  He also hosted one of his somatic workshops where new ideas for poetry/art/creation are generated through a series of exercises. These included dark chocolate and essential oils. Essentially, we love CA at UW.  We hope he visits us again soon!

Oh… It’s Fall

Summer is officially over, and you know what that means – no white after Labor Day. However, it also means that very soon Laramie weather will test us in ways we never imagined. Before any of that starts, let’s take one last look at our wonderful MFA summers.

Ryan Ikeda, 2nd year poetry student, did some awesome stuff. This is what he had to say about it:
  • Over the summer I participated in ENR’s Yellowstone Field Study, as well as conducting research on conservation policy, specifically, how aesthetic appreciation of the scenic influences policy for the unscenic. 
  • Kali Fajardo-Anstine, second-year fiction student, traveled throughout New Mexico and Arizona with support from the English Department and a grant through Arts and Letters. She researched local folklore and also participated in Las Dos Brujas Writing Workshop, taught by Cristina Garcia.  This is what it looked like:
