Tues 2/23th Grey Vild & Julia Guzzio read at Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam at Bluestockings

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

Tuesday Feb 23th 7pm – 9pm

Feature Writers: Grey Vild & Julia Guzzio

Grey Vilds’ writing is mostly concerned with dysphoria and displacement, (trans-ly/ if that’s a word) reclaiming hysteria, disrupting trans narrative and white masculinity. He makes use of voices that range from the narrative to abstract, political to lyrical, all of which claim no innocence.

 Julia Guzzio writes hypothetical love poems along with poems about society and poems that are loosely autobiographical. When not in verse, Julia Guzzio is drawn to writing flash short fiction about the mysterious quality of being on the out skirts of a situation.
