About

Writers at all levels of experience are welcome to gather and talk poems! This workshop invites participants to write into and beyond time, looking at the work of poets like Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Tommy Pico, and Ross Gay. Rooted in the etymology of strangeness as "not belonging to the place where found", we will explore what, where and when belonging can look like as queer people."

Sara Mae is a white, nb poet and fashion witch raised between Baltimore and Annapolis, Maryland. Their work can be found in Boog City, Pigeon Pages, December magazine, and elsewhere. Their first chapbook, Priestess of Tankinis, is out via Game Over Books. They perform burlesque as All the Way Mae Morbid and write sad pop music as The Noisy. They will be an MFA candidate at UT Knoxville this coming fall.
