Excited to announce that I’ll be performing at Eaux Claires this year. Specifically, I’ll be participating as a writer/poet, doing a series of micro-readings throughout the festival. Musicians this year include Chance the Rapper, Wilco, Feist, Danny Brown, and many more, and everyone I’ve talked to about Eaux Claires has told me that it’s a very unique, community-oriented concert/festival experience.
In other news:
1. Upworthy just shared my poem “How To Explain White Supremacy to a White Supremacist,” so thanks both to them and to Button Poetry for that signal boost. Especially right now, challenging ourselves to see oppression and hate as something bigger than just interpersonal acts of bigotry feels pretty important.
2. Two quick links to pieces that I had originally written for Opine Season but have since migrated over to my site (and cleaned up a bit):
- Our Fear Is Valid, and So Is Our Courage: On Art and Artists in Trump’s USA
- If “This Is Not Normal,” Our Responses Can’t Be Either
