Emily Stewart, poetry editor for Giramondo Publishing and winner of the Noel Rowe Prize, launches series 3 of Vagabond Press’s deciBels chapbooks.
Readings by poets Ramon Layola, Anupama Pilbrow, Sumudu Samarawickrama, Ariel Riveros, Jessie Tu, and Dimitra Harvey.
‘Richly diverse in their cultures and communities, these poets trace their ancestries to South Asia and the Philippines, to North Asia, Europe, and South America. Their work encompasses a range of styles and voices that collectively challenges the biopolitics and narrow categories of white heteronormativity so powerful in the establishment.’ —- Michelle Cahill
