Women’s / Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike
Tuesday May 28th 7pm – 9p
Feature Writers: Geri De Luca & Deborah Hauser
Deborah Hauser’s poetry chapbook” Ennui: From the Diagnostic and Statistical Field Guide of Feminine Disorders” is a satirical take on the current status of women and the “woman question.” Her poetry seeks to (dis)enchant the reader and dismantle the happily ever after myth.
Geri De Luca states that novelists only invent plots they can resolve. They ask the questions they can answer. They ultimately have to trust their own knowledge, experience and curiosity, and keep going deeper into the plots and questions they already have.
