This is a transmission from the Precipice Collective, formerly the Inukshuk Collective. Precipice is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the creation and proliferation of eco-somatic critical and creative writing, with an emphasis on the voices of self-identified women and minorities. Offering alternative models of investigative, sustainable research; collaborative, integrative publishing; and engaged, embodied outreach, Precipice is helmed by four graduates of Naropa University’s Jack Kerouac School, now stationed variously in Andover, MA, Austin, TX, Boulder, CO, and Wickford, RI, but meeting in the shared spaces of body, earth, and word. Collectively, we are professors, printers, editors, ghostwriters, mothers, and professional researchers.
