Slice it and dice it anyway you like. Whether you're talking about identity; equity and parity; privilege or pronouns; harassment or assault; cis, trans or non - we all live in, around or beside gender. By sharing personal stories, observations, moments of inspiration, and hope, we look to create a broad poetic tapestry with a goal that the resulting “conversation” between creative voices will make us stronger and help us find a way forward. Information for poets interested in sharing their work.
Poets Creating Conversation is a three-part series that asks poets to help us unpack and navigate through issues that we are all inexorably wrapped in. Expect hard truths and humor; cautionary tales and inspirational stories all rolled into a fast paced program.
