The Mystical and the Magical: Women Writing the Metaphysical Worlds

The metaphysical: the unshakable sense that powers and forces are at play beyond what's testable and observable. This reading will feature four award-winning poets who will read from new and/or most recent collections that explore the metaphysical world. The work of these poets draws from the personal, the public, and the mythological to explore themes of magic, mysticism, and faith as a lens to observe identity, power, spirituality, pain, and healing. These women unapologetically write spells, rituals, exorcisms, legends, and myths as an attempt to connect the reader to the universal and form a powerful community of feminist sisterhood.

With Kristy Bowen, Anne Champion, Brandi George, Jenny Sadre-Orafai
