Letters to the Future: Black Women/Radical Writing, edited by Erica Hunt and Dawn Lundy Martin is available this week from Kore Press.
I’m honored to have work included in this amazing anthology.
From the Publishers Weekly starred review,
“Hunt (Arcade) and Martin (Good Stock Strange Blood) treat the intersection of blackness and womanhood with deserved complexity and curiosity in this exceptional anthology, which operates like a master class in the variety and virtuosity of black women’s art.”
* * Excited to see that one of my poems from the anthology is online at Shondaland.* *
I’m hyped about Thinking Its Presence even though I can’t be there this year.
THINKING ITS PRESENCE 2017: The Ephemeral Archive
brings together the discipline and art of pedagogy and the arts in general with perspectives from critical race theory, poetics, performance studies, literary theory, literary history, ethnic literatures, and Native American and Indigenous studies. Our mission is to foster a dynamic exchange among creative writers, artists, performers, and scholars.
Everything about it looks awesome. This year it’s happening October 19-21 at The University of Arizona, Poetry Center in Tucson.
Extra-excited that on Friday at 2pm there will be a panel on Letters to the Future: BLACK Women/Radical WRITING (Kore Press) with a short reading followed by in-depth discussion focusing on the proliferation of black women writing in expansive, experimental, innovative, inquiring, prophetic, and profane forms/un-forms.
