On Sunday, April 30 2023, I’ll be leading a generative poetry workshop (all levels) with Nikki Wallschlaeger at the first ever Ridges & Rivers Book Festival in Viroqua, Wisconsin. I’m so delighted and excited to be a part of this event! Look here to check out all the poetry-related events happening on the final day of the festival.

(m)omentum: wrapping the gutscape

Friday January 27 & Saturday January 28, 2023 (two performances each night. One at 6pm and one at 7pm) at Magpie Gelato in Viroqua, Wisconsin.

I’ll be textually collaborating with @WEdancesMovementCollaborative & @MatronOfSquirrels in the upcoming performance: (m)omentum: wrapping the gutscape.

Arrive early to contribute to the community-generated writing that will appear in the performance itself.
Join us!  Tickets on sale now at
“(m)omentum: wrapping the gutscape” moves through ideas of what it means to ingest, transform, and manifest the world around us. How does the gut support and move us and where do we find potential spaces for expansion, release, and coming together?
