Outlaw Poets: Sibling Rivalry Press Reading

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The only press to have ever won both Best Gay Poetry and Best Lesbian Poetry, SRP takes its mission directly from Adrienne Rich’s call for outlaw poetry: “There’s a lot of what I would call comfortable poetry around. But then there is all this other stuff going on….It’s intellectual and moral and political and sexual and sensual — all of that fermenting together. It can speak to people who have themselves felt like monsters and say: you are not alone, this is not monstrous. It can disturb and enrapture.” Whether exploring queer identity in the Peace Corps, social fragmentation, or family ghosts the four poets today are outlaws of form and subject. Join us as we share our monsters on the page and work towards creating a literature of connection.
