Abigail Child is a media artist and writer who pushes the envelope of sound-image-text relations with humor, liveliness and complex “plangent, friable, nacreous, lambent, sinewy…and syncopated” montage. An award-winning filmmaker, Child is the author of six books of poetry, among them, A Motive for Mayhem, Scatter Matrix and her most recent MOUTH TO MOUTH, as well as a book of criticism, THIS IS CALLED MOVING: A Critical Poetics of Film (2005) from University of Alabama Press.

Kenyatta JP Garcia is the author of Slow Living (West Vine Press) and This Sentimental Education. They were raised in Brooklyn but currently live in Albany, NY. They spend their nights being paid to put boxes on shelves while their days are dedicated to dreaming.

Phoenix Nastasha Russell is an accomplished poet. Several of her poems have been published in art books like “Rivers of Emotion” and on websites like Poetry.com. She has performed her art work of words in all sorts of venues and has gotten the highest of acclaims. Nastasha’s art oft times incites gut wrenching laughter and at other times intense contemplation as she fires of verse after verse of spellbinding lexis. When she orates her art you can tell that she is truly in her element. Nastasha will entice you and delight you, just like her namesake she’s like a Phoenix taking flight on wings of searing light….her words will never disappoint cause you’ll know and feel just where she’s coming from.

Kerry Downey (born Fort Lauderdale, 1979) is an interdisciplinary artist, writer, and teacher. Downey’s work explores how we interact with each other physically, psychologically, and socio-politically. Encompassing video, works on paper, writing, and performance, their work reimagines the possibilities and limitations of language, gender and intimacy. Their work has recently been exhibited at the Queens Museum, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, the Drawing Center, and Taylor Macklin. In 2015, Downey was awarded the Joan Mitchell Foundation Emerging Artist Grant. They hold a BA from Bard College and an MFA from Hunter College.

Jay Lucero aka Silverfemme is a senior at Hunter College. They were awarded the Martin Luther King Jr. Award from Queensborough Community College. Jay is a poet, actor, and activist born and raised in NYC. They are a magical brown oddity that embodies no and all genders. Instagram: @silverfemme.

Pazia Miller is a queer poet and public school teacher living in Brooklyn. She is currently working on two different poetry collections, one of which is a long form confessional poem in blank verse. Her poetry lives in small corners of the internet and can be found on The Bridge.

Isabelle Shallcross (she/her) writes poems about the South, nature, and being a sad and problematic person under capitalism. Her favorite writers include Chris Kraus, Ross Gay, and Mira Gonzalez. She has received a scholarship to study poetry at the Bread Loaf School of English and is originally from Alabama.

May Day Action: Immigrants and Workers March
May 1 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

We are a nation of immigrants.

We work, we build, we raise families, we vote.

#MayDayAction

As attacks on immigrants and refugees continue to come under the Trump administration, it’s important that we unite together and show the President that we will not be intimidated and we demand respect and fairness.

On May 1st (May Day), let’s come together in Washington and show the world we will not be intimidated by the attacks on immigrants in our country and those seeking opportunity in the United States.

Ariel Levy presents The Rules Do Not Apply with Kate Dries @ WORD Brooklyn
May 18 @ 11:00 pm – May 19 @ 1:00 am

This event is free. RSVPs encouraged but not required.

In 2012, thirty-eight-year-old Ariel Levy was pregnant, married, and had a home. A month later, none of that was true. In THE RULES DO NOT APPLY: A Memoir, Levy, a staff writer for The New Yorker, picks you up and hurls you through the story of how she built an unconventional life and then watched it fall apart with astonishing speed. Like much of her generation, she was raised to resist conventional rules—about work, about love, and about womanhood. In sharp, stunning prose, Levy chronicles the adventure and heartbreak of being “a woman who is free to do whatever she chooses.” Her own story of resilience becomes an unforgettable portrait of the shifting forces in our culture, of what has changed—and what is eternal. And of how to begin again.

Ariel Levy joined The New Yorker as a staff writer in 2008, and received the National Magazine Award for Essays and Criticism in 2014 for her piece “Thanksgiving in Mongolia.” She is the author of the book Female Chauvinist Pigs, and was a contributing editor at New York for twelve years.

Kate Dries is the Deputy Editor of Jezebel. She’s written for The New York Times, BuzzFeed, WBEZ, Deadspin, The Billfold, and others.
