Genevieve Hudson: A Little in Love with Everyone
How does one writer's text influence another writer?
In the context of her book presentation of "A Little in Love with Everyone", Genevieve Hudson invites her author friends to read an excerpt of a writer who influenced them. We will hear Alma Mathijsen, Mia You, Megan Garr, Jing-Jing Lee, Marly Pierre Louis and Anna Arov read.
Growing up queer in the deep South, Genevieve Hudson longed for stories about lives like her own. So she turned to Alison Bechdel’s groundbreaking graphic memoir, "Fun Home". In its panels, she found sly references to Bechdel’s personal influences. "A Little in Love with Everyone" is Hudson’s journey down a rabbit hole of queer heroes like Audre Lorde, Eileen Myles, and Adrienne Rich, who turned their stories into art and empowered future generations to embrace their own truths.
Genevieve Hudson's writing has been published or is forthcoming in Catapult, Hobart, Tin House online, Joyland, Vol.1 Brooklyn, No Tokens, Bitch, The Rumpus, and other places. Her work has been supported by the Tin House Summer Workshop, the Fulbright Program, and artist residencies at the Dickinson House, Caldera Arts, and the Vermont Studio Center. She received an MFA in creative writing from Portland State University, where she occasionally teaches courses on writing and gender studies. She lives in Amsterdam.
