Pollentongue (organized by Jake Skeets) is a poetry salon and reading series based in the American Southwest that invites established and emerging Native writers to read on or near tribal homelands and reservations. Queer poetry salons (organized by tanner menard and Elliot Winter through local non-profit Equality Arizona) are safe spaces for queer writers to share ideas, present new work, and mobilize for full LGBTQ inclusion in the social, economic, and civil mechanisms of society.
Drawing from their experiences as writers, organizers, educators, and students, Jake Skeets, tanner menard, and Elliot Winter will explore how they use their work to create opportunities for others, center diverse voices, uplift individuals, and build community. Individuals of all orientations and identities are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Presented as a public extension of the Desert Nights, Rising Stars Writers Conference in partnership with ASU Open Door, the Desert Nights, Rising Stars Literary Fair is a celebration of creative writing and literary arts in a local community.
