Tues 2/25 Aimee Herman & Ilka Scobie read at Bluestockings’ Women’s/Trans’ Poetry Jam
Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike
Tuesday Feb 25th 7pm – 9pm
Feature Writers: Aimee Herman & Ilka Scobie
Aimee Herman’s poetics deconstruct the architecture of gender and bodies. I experiment with the language of bones, crack them open, count the syllables stuffed inside, and smear what translates onto the page.
Ilka Scobie’s poems are written through the filter of being a feminist, native New Yorker, traveller and teacher.”A passionate song to the city in all its stripped down, scaffolded, merciless and brave beauty.” Janine Pommy Vega
