Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike for Women & Trans’

Tuesday September 29th 7pm – 9pm

Feature Writers:  Kim Morales & Bracha Nechama Bomze

Kim Morales writes poetry centered around the struggle for fundamental social change. Through her work, she hopes to empower working class women of color.

Bracha Nechama Bomze’s  Love Justice is a book-length poem depicting the streams of ancestry, politics, and history that feed the river of her 32-year love affair with another woman.  From the Triangle Fire to the post-Stonewall era, from Liberty Bell chimes to chimes of marriage equality, Bomze’s lyrical call to love justice, including the call for love-justice, inspires and emboldens us to resonate with those ethics we cherish most.

Tues 2/24 Jane Grenier & Leigh G. Phillips Read at Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam at Bluestockings

Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike for Women & Trans’

Tuesday Feb. 24th  7pm – 9pm

Feature Writers: Jane Grenier & Leigh G. Phillips

Naked and pure, Jane Grenier is a fine conjurer of sinewy imagery. A radically jagged-edged writer, she throws a sarcastic blow at the bling and posturizing of modern fashion with brutal precision. Her writings are the voice of dissention, politically challenging, socially relevant and thoroughly entertaining.

Leigh G. Phillips uses experimental forms and personal narrative to electrify empathy and bear witness. She opens doors that are the reverberation of a ghost in the house of memory.

Tues. 12/30 Elizabeth Morse & Stephanie Schroeder Read at Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam at Bluestockings

Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike for Women & Trans’

Tuesday Dec 30th 7pm – 9pm

Feature Writers: Elizabeth Morse &  Stephanie Schroeder

Elizabeth Morse is writing about people who take too many — or too few — risks in their lives. In recent years, I have been doing some political writing, triggered by fallout from the financial crisis of 2008. There were casualties. A character in my fiction has taken to embezzlement in hopes of becoming a reverse Robin Hood.

Stephanie Schroeder’s memoir, Beautiful Wreck, Lies & Suicide chronicles 15 years of misadventures as a lesbian with undiagnosed bipolar disorder in turn-of-the-millennium New York City. She will be reading about themes of mental illness, attempted suicide and recovery/mental health.
