Poetry Reading with Shelley Wong

In her poems, Shelley Wong centers queer women of color to counter their marginalization and foreground their desires independent of motherhood and marriage. Her speakers transform the natural world and themselves, using beauty as a means of sanctuary and subversion. Wong seeks to re-vision the world against patriarchy and colonialism with women who navigate and inhabit a range of spaces. She is interested in using the page as a canvas, a field of queer possibility, to explore how meaning is assembled with silence, linebreaks, and breath. At SPACE, Wong will read from her latest work and answer questions.
