two boats: poems about Carville, LA written in the companionship of ghosts
Two boats is my first zine, a group of poems about what used to be the national leprosarium in Carville, Louisiana. The ghosts are Édouard Glissant and Mark Doty, poets who acted as my ghost companions by answering my questions through their work. The zine includes the poems and my conversations with Glissant and Doty.
Zines and Teaching
I’m a graduate student seeking participants for a narrative study of teaching with zines, formally or informally, with any age group. The study will be primarily conversations about your teaching experiences through letters or email. I’m interested in the “how” questions, but also the “why” questions, and even the “why not.” In addition to the academic project, I plan to compile a resource zine for teachers based on participant responses.
