300 NE Second Ave., Miami, FL 33132 United States
Chen Chen’s poetry collection, When I Grow Up I Want to Be a List of Further Possibilities, winner of the 2016 A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize, investigates inherited forms of love and family—all from Asian American, immigrant, and queer perspectives. Danez Smith’s Don’t Call Us Dead is an astonishing collection of poetry, one that confronts America— where every day is too often a funeral and not often enough a miracle. Harvard English professor Stephen Burt (who also goes by Steph and Stephanie) presents a brilliant and candid exploration of gender and identity in his latest poetry collection, Advice from the Lights. t’ai freedom ford’s debut collection, how to get over, is part instruction manual, part prayer, and part testimony.
