Out of Necessity
During the Winter and Spring of 2011, we've paired some of the finest emerging Bay Area poets with luminaries who span four decades of literary legacy to bring you Out of Necessity. Testing how artistic relationships support and sustain poets as they write as a means of political re-imagination and reclamation, Out of Necessity features award-winning and emerging poets, Regie Cabico and Najva Sol, Cheryl Clarke and Vanessa Huang, and Achy Obejas and Suzanne del Mazo.

Join us for a multi-media performance of these six writers' work, including video clips of queer poets from across the country talking about who's influenced their writing, and a discussion with Cabico, Clarke and Obejas about how mentorship influences their writing and commitment to producing work that speaks to communal stories and histories.

During June 3-5th, Regie Cabico, Cheryl Clarke and Achy Obejas will be hosting writing workshops. Stay tuned for more information!

Please make preparations to ensure this event is accessible and safe for people with chemical injury and environmental illness. We request you refrain from wearing hair and body products with fragrance or clothing washed in detergent with fragrance.
