Poetic Liberation workshop and reading
Icarus Project co-founder, artist, and activist Jacks McNamara has just published a book of queer survivor poetry and is coming to visit these mountains as part of their Spring tour across the US.

On Tuesday, April 30th, at Firestorm Cafe, Jacks will offer a Poetic Liberation writing workshop (6:00pm) for all who want to strengthen their voice, whether experienced writers or new ones. This will be followed by a reading (7:30pm) from Inbetweenland, which is described as:
"Part love song, part howl, part incantation, Inbetweenland is the first book-length collection of Jacks McNamara’s poems, prose, and hybrid experiments in the neon vernacular of being alive. Mapping out radical trajectories through loss, violence, and queer desire, McNamara creates a luminous archive of survival and resilience in a self-destructing world. A visual artist as well as a writer, the author relies heavily on the unexpected image to chronicle the impossible journey through body, family, and history–towards home. From the borderlands of madness to the unpredictable shape of peace, Inbetweenland bears unflinching witness to a rarely charted geography, offering the reader a resonant poetics of insurrection and grace."
