Living Writers: Samuel Ace
April 28 @ 5:20 pm - 6:55 pm | Virtual Event
LIVING WRITERS UCSC, SPRING 2022 presents: CELEBRANT: SOUND ACTIONS
CELEBRANT: SOUND ACTIONS showcases interdisciplinary writers who deeply engage in various sonic forms, whether the libretto and the operatic, sound and visual art, acoustic music and songwriting, or embodied meditations to explore the possibilities in being attentive to sound, as action and celebrant through writing. This hybrid series features an array of writers and artists who work across several modes (text, multi-media, meditation, and performance) exploring what happens between sound and/as verbal language, rendering its effects and configurations through poetry, prose, and sound inspired and activated interdisciplinary writing practices.
Samuel Ace is a trans and genderqueer poet and sound artist. He is the author of several books, most recently Our Weather Our Sea and the newly re-issued Meet Me There: Normal Sex and Home in three days. Don’t wash. He is the recipient of the Astraea Lesbian Writer Award and the Firecracker Alternative Book Award in Poetry, as well as a multi-time finalist for the Lambda Literary Award and the National Poetry Series. Recent work can be found in Poetry, ARC Poetry, PEN America, Best American Experimental Poetry, The Academy of American Poet’s Poem-a-Day, Poetry Daily, We Want it All: An Anthology of Radical Trans Poetics, and many other journals and anthologies.
