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.

This series, started in 1999, is hosted by Vittoria repetto – the hardest working guinea butch dyke poet on the lower east side
