Today's podcast features poet Alison Lubar, who was featured in Raven Rabbit Ram!
Alison Lubar teaches high school English by day and yoga by night. They are a queer, nonbinary, mixed-race femme whose life work (aside from wordsmithing) has evolved into bringing mindfulness practices, and sometimes even poetry, to young people. Their debut chapbook, Philosophers Know Nothing About Love, is out now with Thirty West (May 2022); their second, sweet euphemism, is forthcoming with CLASH!, an imprint of Mouthfeel Press, in 2023. You can find out more at http://alisonlubar.com/ or on Twitter @theoriginalison.

In the intro, I mentioned a poetry reading at Elementary Coffee this Friday, September 30th. You can learn more about this event here.
