Anne Waldman & Ambrose Bye

Anne Waldman has been a presence in the American literary scene since the 1960’s. As well as being the author of over forty books, she was has been a Guggenheim Fellow and is a Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets. In 1968 she established the St. Marks Poetry Project in New York City, which continues to be important venue for American poets. Along with Allen Ginsberg she founded, in 1974, the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at the Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado. The Jack Kerouac School continues to be one of the most important creative writing programs in the country today. Throughout her career she has collaborated with artists and musicians including Bob Dylan, Thurston Moore, John Cage, and Meredith Monk. She annually curates dozens of diverse voices from around the globe to present their work and teach in the JK Summer Writing Program. Her latest book, Trickster Feminism, was released in 2018 and has garnered wide praise. https://hyperallergic.com/453801/anne-waldman-trickster-feminism-penguin-poets-books-2018/ . Her connections to Texas writers began in the 80s with Dallas based Paris Records and her Texas students and peers continue to provide a cross-pollinating network of influence on emerging writers in Dallas. Allen Ginsburg perhaps best captures the spirit of Anne Waldman. “I like Anne Waldman  best of all the women poets because she swings most and orates most and sings most…She also gets up like a dancing skeleton and makes wind through her bones!…She has affairs with books. She writes, publishes, copulates and gives birth to books. She teaches her apprentices to listen like Plato…She has affairs with sapphires, emeralds, amber, and rubies. She knocks me out. She thrills my bones. She is Anne Waldman.”

Ambrose Bye is a jazz musician and producer, owner of Fast Speaking Music. He teaches studio recording at Naropa University’s Summer Writing Program and has produced nearly fifty spoken word and jazz recordings. He has toured the world extensively as musical accompaniment to Waldman and numerous others.
