“Mary Cappello is basically the apex for me of what genre-less (or genre-full) writing can be.” — Darcie Dennigan

Dennigan suggests all interested poets, writers, and readers attend—especially if you have enjoyed a Frequency Writers class on Meditative Art Making or The Essay as Form.

 “Each of my books is a different type of thought experiment, underscored by wonder and hopeful to contribute a parcel of strange beauty to the world.” —Mary Cappello

Cappello is a leading scholar with an impressive list of achievements, publications, and awards. She is the author of five books of literary nonfiction, including Night Bloom, Called Back: My Reply to Cancer, My Return to LifeAwkward: A Detour, and Swallow: Foreign Bodies, Their Ingestion, Inspiration and the Curious Doctor Who Extracted Them.
