A pause, a rose, something on paper.—Lyn Hejinian, My Life

In the essay “Who is Speaking?,” Lyn Hejinian writes: “the invention of oneself as a writer in a community is only part of a larger question; it should be accompanied by the necessity for inventing that community, and thereby participating in the making of the terms that, in turn, themselves play a crucial role in making invention possible.” While ours is not the only journal of its kind, envisioning, curating, and designing Something on Paper felt to us a kind of invention of a poetics, one that both reflected and created our community. We wished for it to be a collaborative endeavor as a system or body of theory about writing; the theory, in turn, became both body and mind, its making and its thinking.

From the outset, the journal reflected the Jack Kerouac School community and began to take on nodal groupings in its organization: the Allen Ginsberg Visiting Fellow, the Leslie Scalapino Lecture in Innovative Poetics, the fourthirtythree: Caged! events, and the students and staff who wrote reviews and transcribed interviews, as well as many others. However, equally as important was our desire to reach beyond the archives of our internal discourse into the larger view of poetics today: to include poets, writers, pedagogues, and citizens advancing scholarly utterance and conversation.

In addition, 2014 marks the 40th anniversary of both Naropa University and the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics. In celebration, we offer the online literary/multimedia poetics journal Something on Paper. The inaugural issue features lectures by Lyn Hejinian and Joan Retallack, interviews with Alice Notley and Peter Yeager, a tribute commemorating John Cage’s 100th birthday, a pedagogy article by Joe Amato & Kass Fleisher, and a roundtable discussion on Violence & Community, as well as much much more. Enjoy!
