Tues 5/26 Poonam Srivastava & Tsaurah Litzky Read at Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam at Bluestockings


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

Tuesday May 26st 7pm – 9pm

Feature Writers:  Poonam Srivastava & Tsaurah Litzky

Poonam Srivastava writes from the queer crossroads of identity, freedom, sex, and politics to offer poems and prose that shine a light on our common journey from birth to death.

Tsaurah Litzky writes about loneliness and love nests, embryos and fossils, the ocean and the waves. Tsaurah Litzky writes about the only true church – the temple of the body, the passage of time, the fens of despair, my family, my friends, the need for riddles and rhymes, the fear of death and how poetry can make the future seem possible.
