Turner Plant Resources Center at The University of Texas at Austin, the largest herbaria in the Southwestern United States. Julie takes us on a journey into the herbarium, describing what it was like to discover that space, and how it became a sanctuary for her where her poems began to blossom and multiply into this beautiful book. Working at a small desk in the back of the building in the tower that was a sniper’s outpost in the 1966 UT mass shooting, Julie writes in her afterword that "Nature is the path forward; all of the lessons of unity are there.” To read more about Julie and her writing, including her incredible essays published in places like HuffPost, Publisher's Weekly and The Texas Observer, visit her website https://www.juliepoolejp.com Julie Poole was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest.

Congress of the Spirits: A Poetry Ritual and Performance Featuring: lily someson, Taisia Kitaiskaia, Heather Christle, Claude Cardona, Faylita Hicks, and Dorothea Lasky
Welcome to Congress of the Spirits: a poetry ritual and performance. We wanted to create a sacred space in the airwaves for us to commune in, focusing on nourishing our depleted spirits with poetry that stimulates the imagination and crosses over into the dreamworld in which we can imagine a better future. Before this magical reading, Claire and Annar offer a short meditative ritual to enter the virtual and imaginative space of the performance, where we can all share in the experience of poetry. For the ritual: If you have these things (or some of these things) on hand, please gather: a scented item that brings you comfort, a scrap of paper and a writing utensil, and a candle. If not, you just need your imagination. Our Magical Readers: lily someson is a poet and essayist from Chicago. She has obtained a B.A. in Poetry from Columbia College Chicago and is a winner of the 2020 Eileen Lannan poetry prize with the Academy of American Poets, as well as the Spring 2021 Host Publications Chapbook Prize for her chapbook, mistaken for loud comets. She has been published or is forthcoming in Court Green, Queeriosity, and Columbia Poetry Review among others. She is currently a first-year Poetry MFA student at Vanderbilt University and an assistant poetry editor of the Nashville Review. On Ritual, lily says: Some of her favorite rituals include grocery shopping, antiquing, postcard collecting, and visiting Lake Michigan on warm summer mornings. Taisia Kitaiskaia is the author of four books: The Nightgown and Other Poems; Literary Witches: A Celebration of Magical Women Writers, a collaboration with artist Katy Horan and an NPR Best Book of 2017; and Ask Baba Yaga: Otherworldly Advice for Everyday Troubles as well as its follow-up, Poetic Remedies for Troubled Times: From Ask Baba Yaga. She is the recipient of fellowships from the James A. Michener Center for Writers and The Corporation of Yaddo. On Ritual, Taisia says: "I have a small wooden fairy door against a big bald cypress in the yard. On special occasions, I'll leave a note or talisman behind the door. Heather Christle is the author of four poetry collections, most recently Heliopause. Her first work of nonfiction, The Crying Book, was published in 2019, with translations now appearing in many languages throughout Europe and Asia. She teaches creative writing at Emory University. Heather says: My favorite ritual is taking a nap, which I do every day. I do not mean to sound flippant; I cannot imagine how I could maintain waking consciousness and awareness of the world without that intervening rest. Claude Cardona is a queer poet from San Antonio. Her chapbook What Remains is a collection of poems about longing and loving as a Chicana in Texas. Cardona is also the co-editor of Infrarrealista Review, a publication for Texan writers. Claude's rituals include: burning letters full of wishes under the full moon, leaving offerings on her altar, and always offering her friends 3 card tarot readings. Faylita Hicks is an activist, writer, and interdisciplinary artist. They are the former Editor-in-Chief of Borderlands: Texas Poetry Review and the author of HoodWitch (Acre Books, 2019), a finalist for the 2020 Lambda Literary Award for Bisexual Poetry. They have been awarded fellowships and residencies from Tin House, Lambda Literary, Jack Jones Literary Arts, Broadway Advocacy, and the Right of Return USA. Their work is featured or forthcoming in Adroit, American Poetry Review, the Cincinnati Review, Ecotone, HuffPost, Longreads, Palette Poetry, Poetry Magazine, The Rumpus, Slate, Texas Observer, VIDA Review, Yale Review, and others. Faylita talks about ritual at the end of their reading, but they say this: “I chose these poems because they have little bits of my rituals inside of them.” Dorothea Lasky is the author of six books of poetry and prose, including Animal (Wave Books). She teaches poetry at Columbia University School of the Arts and lives in New York City. Dorothea Says: My favorite ritual involves taking endless naps and walks, and then spraying new mixes of scents everywhere before writing. This ritual is my greatest luxury and hasn't happened in so many years, but I am hoping it will again one day soon.

Celebrating Black History Month
In this episode, we celebrate Black History Month with a reading and discussion of the anthology African American Poetry: 250 Years of Struggle and Song edited by Kevin Young, Poetry Editor of The New Yorker. This incredible anthology is described as "A literary landmark: the biggest, most ambitious anthology of Black poetry ever published, gathering 250 poets from the colonial period to the present," and in it we found familiar voices that we know and love, as well as new poets, and some whose work is hard to find or long out of print. This is a perfect start to reading African American poetry, and we highly recommend getting yourself a copy! Though there are so many great poets in this anthology, here are those we highlighted in this episode: Claude McKay June Jordan Tyhimba Jess Jericho Brown Tracy K. Smith Morgan Parker For further listening, we recommend a recent episode of The New Yorker Poetry podcast called "Radical Imagination: Tracy K. Smith, Marilyn Nelson and Terrance Hayes on Poetry in Our Times" We also recommend two AWP events, for which poets we highlighted in this episode will be panelists: Sunday, March 7th 1:30-2:30pm Central Time Sn119. Poem About My Rights: June Jordan Speaks, Sponsored by Copper Canyon Press. (Michael Wiegers, Rio Cortez, Jericho Brown, Monica Sok) “I am not wrong: Wrong is not my name / My name is my own my own my own.” A panel of poets and editors will read and discuss iconic works by June Jordan, including the electric, revolutionary “Poem About My Rights.” In her too-short career, Jordan boldly, lyrically, and overtly called out the harms caused by anti-Black police violence, sexual abuse, and heterosexism, lighting a way forward for other writers. Each poet will offer one poem of their own to honor Jordan’s literary influence. Wednesday March 3rd, 3:00-4:00pm Central Time W136. The Futures of Documentary and Investigative Poetries. (Solmaz Sharif, Erika Meitner, Tyehimba Jess, Philip Metres, Layli Long Soldier) Investigative or documentary poetry situates itself at the nexus between literary production and journalism, where the mythic and factual, the visionary and political, and past and future all meet. From doing recovery projects to performing rituals of healing to inventing forms, panelists will share work (their own and others') and discuss challenges in docupoetic writing and its futures: the ethics of positionality, appropriation, fictionalizing, collaboration, and political engagement. Thank you for joining us in honoring the lives and writing of Black poets, past and present, and as always, thanks for listening!

In this episode, we discuss the age-old tradition of reading ghost stories on Christmas! Here are the books we discuss in this episode: The Green Room by Walter de la Mare Christmas Eve on a Haunted Hulk by Frank Cowper The Diary of Mr. Poynter by M. R. James The Night Before Christmas by Nikolai Gogol This is the last episode of Season 1, and we want to thank you for listening from the bottom of our hearts. For season two of The Host Dispatch, we want to connect more with our community and to get your voices in the mix! We plan to read listener stories, poems and experiences on air. To that end, I’d like to put out a call for submissions for the beginning of season 2: "2020 has been such a difficult year for so many of us, in ways we never could have imagined. There has been so much suffering and loss due to the pandemic, so much social upheaval in pursuit of justice for black lives, and the bipoc community, and the conversation won’t end here. As a community of book lovers, I feel we’ve learned that books are not only an escape from reality, but can be tools we use to cope with and better understand our reality. I know I’ve learned just how powerful a book can be in helping to change the minds and hearts of those who are willing to listen. To that end, we want to hear from you: Tell us What book has helped you cope this year? What book feels like the most important book for the year 2020? What should we be reading to carry us into the new year, to face whatever challenges may come in 2021? We want to hear about your experience with these books, and to create a powerful reading list to share with our listeners and our community to kick off 2021 in the best way possible!
