On Friday, July 26, 2019, KSW Presents: “Monsters I Have Been,” a poetry reading featuring Kenji Liu (Monsters I Have Been) and MT Vallarta. This event explores the many possibilities of our relationships to gender and gendering, and to reimagine ways of being in gender and being of gender, so that we can create space for ourselves in the world. The title of this event comes from Kenji Liu's latest poetry collection.
We are opening up submissions for writers to be a part of this reading. We will only be able to accept up to five readers.
Eligibility: We welcome writers of all genres, and strive to spotlight those of the Asian Pacific diaspora and people of color. We are especially interested in showcasing emerging writers who have had little stage time or few publications.
At this time, KSW Presents cannot provide payment for writers who submit to be a part of this reading series, but we are actively pursuing funding for this program.
How to Apply: Submit work that explores this upcoming event's theme, that can be read or performed within 3 minutes or less. Apply here (no fee).
