Our guest Feb 16, 2010 5PM will be Ruth Lepson. Lepson tells us:
Hi. I'm a poet & poet-in-residence at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA. In recent years I've been collaborating with musicians, & previously I collaborated with visual artists & with other poets. I spend a lot of time at home doing paperwork. No one should have to do paperwork, but everyone should have some time for an art form. My latest book, I Went Looking for You, came out this year with blazeVOX.org. Artist Rusty Crump and I had a book of prose poems and photos, Morphology, published in 2007 by blazevox.org, which you can read as a free e-book or buy a copy of. Alice James Books published my other book of poems, Dreaming in Color, & in 2004 U of Illinois Press published Poetry from Sojourner: A Feminist Anthology, which I edited. My poems have been in many magazines, lately innovative ones, for example, Carve, EOAGH (where I'm now on the editorial board), Big Bridge, & Shampoo. I've given many readings, including ones in NY and Philadelphia.
