Black Lives Matters + Justice4Women: Open Mic & Book Launch

Join the Center for Women Writers for an open mic and a celebration of the publication of two important anthologies published by NC presses—Red Sky (Sable Press) and Resisting Arrest: Poems to Stretch the Sky (Jacar Press). These timely anthologies recognize the impact of brutalities against people of color and women.
Attendees are invited to read two poems for our open mic: one by a woman of color who writes toward social justice, and one original poem that speaks toward social justice.
