LITQUAKE ON LOCKDOWN | Ode to Our 13-Year Old Selves

Hosted/Organized by: Litquake


Prompted by a fireside moment at a writing conference, these poets with varying childhood experiences of race, gender, sexuality, migration, culture and religion, will share work that honors their 13-year-old selves — and the surprise, disbelief, pride, love, and even derision those 13-year-old selves might have for the grown and poetry folx they have become. Participants will each open their readings by addressing themselves as their younger selves might experience them now. An unforgettable evening of vulnerable intimacy, physical distancing, and social connection. With Hari Alluri, Nico Amador, Faisal Mohyuddin, Cynthia Dewi Oka, and Seema Reza. FREE, $5 suggested donation
