Woman Scream: International Women's Poetry Movement, Anchorage
Friday, March 1 from 4:00 pm-6:00 pm at the UAA Campus Bookstore
Woman Scream: International Women's Poetry Movement, Anchorage Chapter with Itzel Yarger-Zagal
This event highlights the international Women’s Poetry Movement, Anchorage Chapter and the theme, “Woman Scream”. Hosted by Itzel Yarger-Zagal, people from all walks of life are encouraged to share their own poetry and/or that of other women poets. Instead of offering bilingual or translated poems, readers will explain the meaning of their poem and then recite it in the poem’s original language. Poems in English can be recited, too.
Poetess Jael Uribe founded the Mujeres Poetas Internacional (MPI) Inc., or Women Poets International Movement, in 2009 in the Dominican Republic. The goal is to “enhance the work of women in poetry and reclaim out rightful place in literature”.
If you would like to sign up to share a poem, contact Rachel Epstein at 786-4782 or cmVwc3RlaW4yIHwgYWxhc2thICEgZWR1. (Open Mic, for those not registered, given remaining time.)
All UAA Campus Bookstore events are free and open to the public. There is free parking at UAA on Fridays.
