Anne Waldman: Voice’s Daughter of a Heart Yet To Be Born

Posted: May 30, 2016 at 11:26 am by , in Featured, Morning Magazine

Anne Waldman is an internationally recognized and acclaimed poet who has been an active member of the “Outrider” experimental poetry community – a culture she has helped create and nurture for over four decades as writer, editor, teacher and performer.

Her poetry is recognized in the lineage of Whitman and Ginsberg. She co-founded with Allen Ginsberg the celebrated Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University in Boulder which is hosting its annual Summer Writing Program June 12 – July 9, 2016.

Waldman is the author of over 40 books and collections of poetry and her latest collection of poems is Voice’s Daughter of a Heart Yet To Be Born in which she appropriates the idea of Blake’s unborn spirit of Thel to explore artists’ and activists’ roles during the Anthropocene.

 

Anne Waldman will be speaking at the Tattered Cover on Colfax in Denver on June 9th at 7pm.
