Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. LGBT Studies. CAConrad's ECODEVIANCE contains twenty-three new (Soma)tic writing exercises and rituals, plus their resulting poems. These exercises, unorthodox steps in the writing process, work to break the reader and writer out of the quotidian and into a more politically and physically aware present. In performing these rituals, CAConrad looks through a sharper lens and confirms the necessity of poetry and politics.
CA Conrad has been working with the ancient technologies of poetry and ritual since 1975.
