Tonight: Jack Collom at Denver University!


TONIGHT! The legendary Jack Collom will read at Denver University. Jesse Morse will also read. Hope to see you there!


Jack Collom is one of the preeminent nature and eco-lit writers in the United States. He is the author of multiple volumes of poetry, including RED CAR GOES BY, a selected poems. He has been the recipient of a Foundation for Contemporary Arts grant and teaches at Naropa University. His latest book is Second Nature (Instance Press).

“This wise, playful, polyvalent masterwork reflects a singular, patient, astutely observant, pertinacious man’s lifelong commitment to participating, justly and compassionately, in the world as he has found it around him. Collom’s vision is of a natural complex that is extravagantly complicated and deliriously infinite.”—Lyn Hejinian

“SECOND NATURE reads like an early morning look at a wild alpine meadow with critters large and small popping up and back down—birds flitting and cruising, never still—easy to lose the thread. Bigger than we thought. Dawn. Collom has always been a leader.”—Gary Snyder


Jesse Morse was recently anthologized in Alive at the Center: Contemporary Poems from the Pacific Northwest (Ooligan Press), which is amusing as he lives in Denver, pursuing a PhD there. Other work forthcoming in Amerarcana. His March bracket’s not going so well.
