Madison McCartha brings together a cosmic group of poets and artists to celebrate FREAKOPHONE WORLD (Inside the Castle, 2021)—with poetry and digital art.
Readings by: Madison McCartha, Ava Hofmann, Never Angeline North, Anaïs Duplan and Vi Khi Nao.
FREAKOPHONE WORLD performs both as a book-length poem and occulted terrain, which together reimagine black diasporic life in an increasingly imperiled and globalized society. The speaker in this poem comes from a long tradition—of FREAKS, outsiders, others, and spirits calling out to the living reader from the undead, black, and unapologetically freakophonic space of the text.
Co-presented by Mills College Creative Writing Program and the Place for Writers. Supported in part by Poets & Writers.
