CANCELED: Journey into the Self: Illness, Poetry, and the Margins with Washington State Poet Laureate Arianne True

Event Description

This event has been CANCELED.

Washington State Poet Laureate Arianne True has spent a lot of time getting to know and re-know herself, as those of us who are pushed to the margins of society, or who experience chronic illness and disability, often do. Join Arianne for an evening exploring that journey into and with the self, looking at how Western society so often separates us from ourselves, how we find our ways back, and how a changing/sick body affects it all. And don’t worry, we’ll bring it back to poetry.

Arianne True is the 2023-2025 Washington State Poet Laureate, appointed by Governor Inslee. A member of the Choctaw and Chickasaw nations, she has dedicated years to teaching and mentoring young poets around the Salish Sea. Arianne has received fellowships from Jack Straw Cultural Arts, Hugo House, and Artist Trust. She is an alum of Hedgebrook and the MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts and was recently the Seattle Repertory Theater’s first Native Artist-in-Residence.

The Poet Laureate program is sponsored by Humanities Washington and The Washington State Arts Commission/ArtsWA, with the support of Governor Jay Inslee. See the full website of the Poet Laureate here.

Poet Laureate events are produced by the hosting organization. More details about this event to come.
