Sara Wintz on ceptuetics

Sara Wintz reads several short poems from a manuscript on language & gender, discusses those topics, her reading practices, Language poetry, regionalism and more here.

The file throws you into her second poem after the intro and hellos, so here is a bio:

Description: Sara Wintz is lead singer of the pretty panicks press and co-publisher of :::thepressgang:::, publisher of juliana spahr's recent chapbook, intricate systems, and--in december--karen volkman's one might. Sara's writing has appeared in cricketonlinereview, shampoo poetry, ecopoetics, and canwehaveourballback.

Apologies to Sara & friends for the delay in airing + recording! Hope you enjoy it all the same.

To those who tuned in this past Wednesday to hear Sara Wintz, I'm very sorry the interview didn't air. I was out of town for the holidays and an earlier interview (with Steve Zultanski) was aired by mistake.

So, Sara Wintz will now be reading & talking about her poetry this coming Wednesday the 28th from 7:30-8:00pm. If you miss it, catch it afterwards at or right here.

Thanks for the interest!

Steve Zultanski on Ceptuetics

Following Saturday's President's Choice reading, Steve Zultanski stopped by yesterday on ceptuetics. He read portions of his chapbook Homoem (Radical Readout, 2005), along with a few other poems of his, which likewise sample and problematize some of the most disturbing characteristics of contemporary media and politics through a persistent, repetitive "list-poem" form. In addition to discussing his own work, we talked about his journal Presidents Choice.

Listen to the full show here.
