This article was published in a special issue of Art/Research International: A Transdisciplinary Journal on poetry and social justice (Volume 3 Issue 1). It makes the argument that women’s poetry is a form of social activism that furthers the feminist cause and uses my own original poetry to show the forms this poetic activism can take.
Poetry, Art, and Transgenre Work
My poems “Susceptible” and “A Lasting Impression” were published in The Ibis Head Review (Volume 2 Issue 2). They appear on pages 37 and 38 in this issue.
For my contribution to The Light Ekphrastic (Issue 21), I was paired with an artist who created a work of art after my poem “Cat People.” I then wrote the poem “Deed’s Creek” after one of his works of art, and the artwork and poems were featured alongside each other in the issue.
My collage Skin was featured in Spry Literary Journal (Issue 8) along with an interview about the artwork and my artistic process.
This transgenre piece is an excerpt from my master’s thesis, which is titled Like Las Vegas. The project uses anatomical images and diagrams, original photography, and prose-poetry to tell the story of a young woman caring for her brother. Chapter 2, which is the excerpt featured here, was published in The Hunger: A Journal (Issue 1).
