Sunday, November 11, 1:30 pm Woman Made Gallery 685 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago

In the spirit of Lucile Clifton, this reading is meant to "comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable." Join six remarkable poets who occupy words, not as a polemic but toward truth-telling, for a memorable evening of words made to occupy. Curated by Valerie Wallace, the poets will read from their work and talk about how and why they approach poetry to be used on and off the page.

Featuring Poet & Spoken Word Artist Tiff Beatty Poet & Visual Artist Krista Franklin Poet & Text Artist Jill Magi Poet & Slam Winner Marty McConnell Poet & Performance Artist Jamila Woods Event Curator & Poet Valerie Wallace
