Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike
Tuesday July 26th 7PM – 9PM
Feature Writers: Raphael Moser & Stephanie Schroeder
Raphael Moser’s poetry investigates the world as a chaotic layering of subtext and conflict, it evokes a painterly or sculptural sense of the tension in relationship. The individual committed to a greater community is beholden to a transformation of the self to demarcate an ethical stance which explores the balance in justice.
In Stephanie Schroeder’s darkly humorous and sometimes perverse memoir, Beautiful Wreck: Sex, Lies & Suicide, she chronicles 20 years of misadventures as a transplanted Midwestern lesbian with undiagnosed Tourette Syndrome and bipolar disease in turn-of-the-millennium New York City. From being staffer in a shelter to being locked in a ward, it is a raw account of fifteen yrs both marred and informed by mental illness.
