Thanks to all who made it out and to Asian American Writers’ Workshop for hosting such a phenomenal event. It was powerful to perform with an API and QAPI crowd along with Jess Chen and Sonia Guiñansaca! What vivid QTPOC poetry from these femmes and migrant community to witness!
Bummed that you missed the fireworks on the 4th of July? Don’t worry, we’ve got you – Mouth to Mouth Open Mic is back this Saturday with some crazy literary fireworks, featuring Jess X. Chen and Kay Ulanday Barrett! Bring your best prose or come to be inspired by others’ stories and songs!
My poem, “When the Chant Comes” is featured & reviewed by Topside Press! It’s the poem of the week. This poem was written in gratitude for Andre Leneal Gardner, my brother, queer kindred, & fam. Thanks so much for this review & for supporting my work! Thanks Cat Fitzpatrick!
