Whiskey Ginger is a collection of 54 stunning poems written by two graduates of the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University. The poets' collaborative process–writing poems of the same title–blossomed into this compilation that is all at once lyrical, playful, funny, tender, sensual, full of heart, and deeply thought-provoking. A simple idea: One of the poets would send a completed poem to the other. The receiving poet would take the title of the sent poem and complete his or her own version and send it back. The constant exchange of poems was exciting, and after a while, both poets instinctively knew which poem ideas would naturally complete the book. Both poets had a feeling that John's love of form and wordplay and Natascha's earthy and natural free verse would blend beautifully in this collection. John and Natascha are eager to begin new poems that will be separate ventures for now. But who knows? Perhaps another compilation will come together in the future!

About the Author:

Natascha Bruckner loves writing, quilting, meditating, dreaming on the beach near her home in Santa Cruz, enjoying PJ days with her tender-hearted firebrand partner, and being an auntie to four beautiful nieces—one of whom was born just as this book was being completed! Natascha likes to write poems in lowercase. She had great fun making this book, and she’s deeply grateful to John for being an inspiring, hilarious, kindred spirit, building wordcastles in the poetry playground. John Chinworth is an astrologer who graduated with both Natascha and Christopher from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, in a year that will go unnamed. He lives on Mercer Island, smack-dab in the middle of Lake Washington, where raccoons have been prevalent lately. His sweet beau is a handsome devil who makes a mean pecan pie. Like a good Uber-Sagittarius, John uses capital letters frequently. Thanks and hugs to Natascha who was sent most likely from Mount Helicon. Poet and visual artist Christopher Luna is the co-founder, with Toni Partington, of Printed Matter Vancouver, whose books include Ghost Town Poetry, an anthology of poems from the popular Vancouver, WA open mic reading he founded in 2004, and Serenity in the Brutal Garden, the debut collection by Vancouver poet Jenney Pauer. His books include GHOST TOWN, USA and The Flame Is Ours: The Letters of Stan Brakhage and Michael McClure 1961-1978, an important piece of film and literary history that Luna edited at Brakhage’s request, available on Michael Rothenberg’s Big Bridge.org. Luna’s visual artwork can be seen at Leah Jackson’s Angst Gallery in Vancouver, WA.
