Thurs 9/28 – Mary Giaimo & Emily Vogel Read at Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam – Bluestockings

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

Thursday – September 28th  7pm – 9pm 

Writers: Mary Giaimo & Emily Vogel

Mary Giaimo has occupied many in-between spaces in her life, as an expatriate American teaching English in Italy, an expatriate Midwesterner in New York, a middle-school teacher (in a mostly Italian school), and as a fairy step-parent—a counter-narrative to the sexist trope of the wicked stepmother. Her work is about drift as a poetic process, about movement and language into psychic and physical spaces between myth and fairy tale, prose and poetry, linear and fragmented vision. 

Emily Vogel considers herself a third – wave feminist poet, whose themes in her poetry range from domesticity, to Catholicism, to family and children, to larger ontological & philosophical precepts. All of this aspires to the impossibility of “perfect” love. Her poetry is often surreal, sometimes lyrical, with a broken narrative.
