In celebration of the Jack Kerouac School’s 40th anniversary, we launched Something on Paper, an online literary/multimedia poetics journal. Past issues feature lectures by Lyn Hejinian, Joan Retallack, Lisa Robertson, interviews with Alice Notley and Bin Ramke, and round table discussions on Violence & Community as well as Territory.
