Event Type

Four Mississippi poets, Ellie Black, Melissa Ginsburg, Maggie Graber, and C.T. Salazar, will read from recent work. These writers navigate issues of queerness, gender, power, and the divine. Because where we’re from shapes how we speak, there’s an interdependent relationship between voice and landscape. These works dwell in landscapes natural and technological, shaped by history, myth, ecology, and pop culture. They are interested in psychology, violence, and trauma, operating at the intersection of the monstrous and the human. Enlivened by lush imagery, sonic play, humor, and formal innovation, these poems present angels and video game glitches, dead gods and endangered wild spaces, as sites of possibility, longing, and transformation.
