Here’s a great shot of T.R. Hummer speaking last week about poetry and the writing process at the Hudson Valley Writers Center in Sleepy Hollow, New York. His latest poetry collection, After the Afterlife, is out now through Acre Books.

After the Afterlife explores the zone between language and spirit. It is a book of inner and outer boundaries: of blockades, of tunnels, of wormholes. Where does our consciousness come from, and where is it going, if anywhere?
