Join Belladonna* at the Bureau for our first reading of 2020. Be there to welcome poets Jasmin Gibson and Sam Corfman, during a night of poetry and for the launch of two new chaplets on January 17th at 7pm.
Jasmine Gibson is a Philly jawn. She spends her time thinking about sexy things like psychosis, desire, and freedom. She is the author of Drapetomania (Commune Editions, 2015) and Don’t Let Them See Me Like This (Nightboat Books, 2018). She is a part of the editorial collective Pinko, magazine for gay communism.
Sam Corfman is a nonbinary poet from Chicago, living in Pittsburgh. Their first book Luxury, Blue Lace came out this past March, chosen by Richard Siken for the Autumn House Rising Writer Prize; it received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, which called it an “extraordinary debut…a work of rare beauty and thoughtfulness.” They are also the author of the letterpress chapbook, Meteorites (DoubleCross Press), an excerpt from a forthcoming second collection My Daily Actions, or The Meteorites, chosen by Cathy Park Hong for the Fordham POL Prize and forthcoming in Fall 2020.
