Report from the Field with Amy De’Ath, Jennifer Tamayo and Cassandra Troyan

Join us for an info-share with poets in, from, and moving between Vancouver, Chicago, New York and London. How are other scenes, institutions, editors and curators responding to rape and sexual violence in writing communities? De’Ath, Tamayo and Troyan will share their experiences organizing meetings, potlucks and online interventions, in a discussion of the dymanics, difficulties, and benefits of their respective locations, actions taken and not taken. What does feminist solidarity look like? What might it look like? How can we take better care of one another? What kind of socialities and spaces do we want to create?
