My first book, trigger, will launch at the 2016 Capturing Fire Queer Slam & Summit in Washington, DC on June 3. I will be giving a featured reading at Alchemy: A Trans Performance Showcase at Coffy Cafe on my first stop of the trigger Tour. Alchemy is founded and hosted by literary, musical, and theatre artist Lady Dane Figueroa Edidi.
Capturing Fire was founded by Nuyorican Poets Café Grand Slam Champion & the “Fairy Godmother of Spoken Word in DC” Regie Cabico and Beltway Poetry Slam Champion Natalie E. Illum. It is a poetry festival that includes panels, workshops, and performances from poets from the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Capturing Fire promotes trans and queer artists of the poetry slam and encourages solidarity, risk, and artistic career growth as poets make invaluable professional and personal friendships so that a queer literally lineage is set in motion.
This will be my first featured performance at Capturing Fire and my third year of attending this festival.
trigger will be available May 31 via CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform.
