Jaimie Gusman is a poet who runs Mixing Innovative Arts, a popular monthly reading series and summer writing workshop series in downtown Honolulu. She has taught writing workshops at the University of Washington, the University if Hawaii Manoa, and the Ko`olau Writers Workshop. Jaimie has has two chapbooks, The Anyjar (Highway 101 Press, 2012) and One Petal Row (Tinfish Press, 2011), and her poems can be found in journals such as B O D Y, Trout. and Diagram. In her workshops she likes to focus on traditional craft while also introducing innovative writing practices. Jaimie sees poetry as a point of inquiry into narrative, identity, sound, and syntax–not just an expression of those things. She loves investigating and interrogating the lines between genres, discussing language use and misuse, and lingering in the white space on the page.
