Catherine Lee explores poetry’s percussive jazz voice and social change activism by reading solo and performing with improvising musicians “on poem.” Since 1976, Lee’s multifaceted writing has appeared in small press publications and anthologies, both in print and online. Lee collaborates with media artists to create crossover educational works that traverse thought boundaries. Her annotated jazz-related poetry was featured in the July 2020 "Music" Issue 5 of Northampton Poetry Review, pages 63-74. Multimedia poetry, documentary videos, and radio specials are archived on Soundcloud and VIMEO. She blogs about notable musical/poetic collaborations on Facebook/Jazz Ovation Inn, and markets writing/editing services on Cat at Jazz Ovation Inn.
