Testimonies, Chisme, Spilling the Tea: An Evening of Poetry
A literary event sure to sparkle, rectify and incite, as established & emerging poets scratch the page with literary histories -- crossing generations, genres and borders of any and all imaginations. Join this intergenerational entourage of fierce queer writers and poets, as they testify to the piercing pleasures of textual promise in poetry.
Featuring Dorothy Allison, Ching-In Chen, Elana Dykewomon, Rigoberto González, Eloise Klein Healy, Cole Krawitz, D.A. Powell, Ely Shipley & Griselda Suárez. Hosted by Jewelle Gomez.
Featured writers participated as faculty and fellows in Lambda Literary Writers Retreat, a program that bridges the gaps between generations, and forges a new expression for LGBTQ writing.
Curated & Produced by Cole Krawitz & Griselda Suárez
Doors at 7pm; Show at 7:30pm
The event will be followed by a book signing & reception.
