About the Host
POET ON WATCH: The reason why I write.
I write out of the burning need to produce, publish and read the stories of women, queer people of color and the African American community; to witness these stories come alive in our hearts, on the screen, on the stage, in print and in our communities. I write because I am apart of a long her-story of poets that are willing to tell the truth and die for telling it. I write because I’m willing to push the edge in the language we speak so I can be a vessel for those that get stuck on the single narrative told about our lives.
