  • Anne Waldman has been a prolific and active poet and performer many years, creating radical new hybrid forms for the long poem, both serial and narrative, as with Marriage: A Sentence, Structure of the World Compared to a Bubble, Manatee/Humanity, and Gossamurmur, all published by Penguin Poets. She is also the author of the magnum opus The Iovis Trilogy: Colors in the Mechanism of Concealment (Coffee House Press), a feminist “cultural intervention” taking on war and patriarchy which won the PEN Center 2012 Award for Poetry. She has been deemed a “counter-cultural giant” by Publisher’s Weekly for her ethos as a poetic investigator and cultural activist, and was awarded the American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation for Lifetime Achievement, 2015. She has also been at the forefront many decades in creating educational communities and has focused on the necessity of archival practices to insure the memory of some of the 20th and 21st century’s most precious literary histories and oral recordings. She was one of the founders of the Poetry Project at St Mark’s Church In-the-Bowery, and its Director a number of years and then went on to found The Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University with Allen Ginsberg in 1974. She has continued to work at Naropa as a Distinguished Professor of Poetics and Artistic Director of its Summer Writing Program. She has been A Professor of The Practice at Brown University, 2018-19. She is the editor of The Beat Book and co-editor of Civil Disobediences: Poetics and Politics in Action, and Beats At Naropa and most recently, Cross Worlds: Transcultural Poetics. Her most recent poetry collections are Voice’s Daughter of a Heart Yet To Be Born (Coffee House Press, 2016) and Trickster Feminism (Penguin 2018).
