Poetry Night

Friday, March 23 at 7:00pm
Join us for a Poetry Night featuring Jennifer Morales, Kristen E. Nelson, TC Tolbert, and Franciszka Voeltz.

Jennifer Morales is a poet, fiction writer, and performance artist whose work wrestles with questions of gender, identity, complicity, and harm. Her first book, Meet Me Halfway: Milwaukee Stories (UW Press, $19.95), a collection of interconnected short stories about life in hyper-segregated Milwaukee, was the Wisconsin Center for the Book’s 2016Book of the Year.”

Kristen E. Nelson is a queer writer and performer, literary activist, LGBTQ+ activist, and community builder. She is the author of the length of this gap (Damaged Goods, August 2018)  and two chapbooks: sometimes I gets lost and is grateful for noises in the dark (Dancing Girl, 2017) and Write, Dad (Unthinkable Creatures, 2012).

TC Tolbert often identifies as a trans and genderqueer feminist, collaborator, dancer, and poet but really s/he’s just a human in love with humans doing human things. S/he is Tucson’s Poet Laureate and author of Gephyromania (Ahsahta, $18), four chapbooks, and co-editor of Troubling the Line: Trans and Genderqueer Poetry and Poetics (Nightboat, $27.95).
Franciszka Voeltz, author of the chapbook POETXTS, has been published in multiple literary journals, including Dark Mountain and Analecta Literary Journal. Voeltz sees poetry as part of the muscle that works to abolish prisons, dismantle the racism and capitalistism of the heteropatriarchy we live in, take down border walls and redistribute resources so that all life will have what it needs to thrive.
