Synkroniciti is thrilled to welcome poet, writer and phenomenologist Lori Howe. Lori is one of the creators of the cadralor, a new poetic form consisting of 5 separate stanzaic episodes which could stand alone, but complement each other and interrelate in way that gives the piece a larger structure… it’s sort of like coming at an idea from different sources or angles. We are privileged to feature several cadralor in the upcoming issue, and one of them is Lori’s “Cadralor #9 “(dis)articulation–for Patrick.” It is a joining together of head and heart to examine what it means to be human (Synkroniciti’s favorite subject).
Lori Howe is a co-creator of the new poetic form, the cadralor. She is also the author of Cloudshade: Poems of the High Plains (Sastrugi Press, 2015) and Voices at Twilight (Sastrugi Press, 2016). Her poetry has appeared or is forthcoming in such journals as The Meadow, Clerestory, Red Hook, Verse-Virtual, McQueen’s Quinterly, and Pilgrimage. She is a poetry editor with Sastrugi Press, as well as a phenomenologist whose peer-reviewed research appears in The Journal of Poetry Therapy, Qualitative Inquiry, and others. She holds a Ph.D. in Literacy Education and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing/Poetry from the University of Wyoming, where she is a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Honors College. She is the Editor in Chief of Gleam: Journal of the Cadralor and of Clerestory: Poems of the Mountain West. She is currently at work on the cadralor collection “Ocean, Ocean.”
She lives in Laramie, Wyoming.
