This Wednesday, we were so pleased to host Ashia Ajani for a feature and exceptional workshop, inviting participants and listeners to consider a whole environment, a whole nature that includes both the colonial and diasporic, and an apocalypse that invites us to love. Looking forward to hearing more of our workshoppers’ poems as the month goes on.
Coming up next: Citizen Illegal author José Olivarez hasn’t been to visit us since before his book was published, back in 2015. This coming Wednesday he’ll be riding high on the success of this vividly important publication, plus no doubt carrying some new work to share. Open mic hopefuls are advised to arrive at our 7:15 door time as tonight’s event is likely to sell out.
