I should really post things before they happen, but January, this brutal month, ran away from me and all that’s left are these pictures. I was so glad to read alongside lovely poets and friends John Manuel Arias, Zefyr Lisowski, and heidi andrea restrepo rhodes.
It was incredible to pack the room, and we all, being queer as heck, pulled up with our outfits because readings are sometimes sexy too. It’s been a shitty and cold month and it filled my heart to end it looking cute and sharing amazing writing with a supportive community.
Really excited and lucky to be reading with Sally, and with Vidhu (and Kearny Street Workshop). Come out and see me at either one (or both) of these!
This Spring, I was invited to join the “Proof Casts a Shadow” panel discussion, featuring Kenyon Fellows Keith S Wilson and Misha Rai, alongside visiting writers Gabrielle Bellot and Nay Saysourinho.
We discussed the responsibilities & risks of creating art from the margins, the burden of representation, how to find recognition among one another, & more.
It is a long one but a good one.
