18 Poems & (Soma)tic Rituals
The pamphlet 18 Poems & (Soma)tic Rituals by CAConrad is a short collection of poems based on a series of rituals conducted by the poet. (Soma)tic rituals are intended to channel the most essential, daring, and innovative part of an artist. No matter who you are, having a daily creative practice can expand your ability to form the crucial questions we need to be asking ourselves about how to change the destructive direction we are all currently headed toward on our tiny planet. The poems and rituals express grief over loss due to violence, homophobia, and ecological destruction, among other sources. As CAConrad says in their “Manifesto-Introduction: “If you used to paint, paint again. If you used to write poems, start writing again. The potential magic of this world requires our participation. I’m not a motivational speaker; I’m a poet. I’m not an optimist; I simply believe in the possibilities of our collective genius.”
“CAConrad’s poems invite the reader to become an agent in a joint act of recovery, to step outside of passivity and propriety and to become susceptible to the illogical and the mysterious.” —Tracy K. Smith, New York Times
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, 2017) received a Lambda Literary Award. A recipient of a Pew Fellowship in the Arts, they also received the Believer Magazine Book Award and the Gil Ott Book Award. Their work has been translated into Spanish, Greek, Polish, Norwegian, Portuguese, Danish, French, and German. They teach regularly at Columbia University and at the Sandberg Art Institute in Amsterdam.
The Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies Press publishes experimental text works exploring the intersections between critical theory, art, politics, and literature.
