Words Made to Occupy

Woman Made Gallery Poetry Reading Series
recorded Sunday, 2012-11-11

event profile:
In the spirit of Lucile Clifton, this reading is meant to "comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable." Join six remarkable poets who occupy words, never as a polemic but always toward truth-telling, for a memorable afternoon of words made to occupy. Curated by Valerie Wallace, the poets will read from their work and talk about how and why they approach poetry to be used on and off the page.
