THE MESS OF BEING HUMAN
The Jung Society of Utah and Ecstatic Dance are pleased to bring a night of poetry that will surely move your body. The Mess of Being Human will start with Rhode Island Poet Laureate Emerita Lisa Starr, who will bring her award-winning collection of poetry and storytelling. The second part of the night will be a slam poetry competition and the evening will end with a sound bath ceremony.



LISA STARR
Lisa Starr is the author of three collections of poetry, including Mad With Yellow, her most recent.  She also co-edited the anthology Where Beach Meets Ocean, celebrating the Block Island Poetry Project, the writing series she founded and  directed for 13 years at The Hygeia House. Starr was Rhode Islands Poet Laureate from 2007-2013.

After living on Block Island for 30 years, where she ran an inn (The Hygeia House) and raised her children, Starr has recently and happily relocated to Westerly, RI, where she is nearing completion of Pot Luck, a collection of poems about children, and collaborating with her long-time companion, the poet and Rumi translator Coleman Barks, on a memoir about grief, time and friendship with Mary Oliver.  The newly appointed Artistic Director for the Arts Café Mystic, Starr moonlights serving tacos and sangria at a very cool local cantina.  She also runs a monthly poetry salon at The Savoy Bookstore and Café in Westerly.
