Tuesday June 28th Emari DiGiorgio & Tamiko Beyer at Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam

Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike


Tuesday June 28th  7PM – 9PM


Feature Writers: Emari DiGiorgio & Tamiko Beyer


Tamiko Beyer  ‘s chapbook, Bough Breaks, sets out to interrogate queer motherhood, implications of gender, and the politics of adoption. Tisa Bryant writes, “She skillfully breaks and resets form, creating poems that are terse, tender and ultimately, enduring.”


Emari DiGiorgio writes poems about living in the world as a female westerner and confronting one’s education and stereotypes. The poems often explore the roles women embody, as mothers, daughters, friends, lovers, aggressors, and victims; and they celebrate the body and female sexuality.
