Franny Choi, Tommy Pico, Sam Sax, Brenda Shaughnessy, moderated by Ari Banias

Straddling tenderness and rage, and studying our rapidly changing world with a kaleidoscopic lens, Franny Choi (“Soft Science”), Tommy Pico (“Junk”), Brenda Shaughnessy (“The Octopus Museum”), and Sam Sax (“Bury It”) testify to the deep ache and delicious wonder of survival. With genre-bending work that is as playful as it is subversive, bursting with questions and contradictions that resist hegemony at every turn, these four poets are queering the canon one poem at a time.
