We held a lovely global zoom reading for our poets on March 14th. Here are a few photos from the event (thanks to Cathy Greenhalgh for taking them).

 

Keep an eye on our website for news of future readings, mini-webinars, and other events.

Our chapbook cover artist is Virginia  Chihota

She graduated in Fine Arts from the National Art Gallery Studios in Harare, Zimbabwe in 2006. Chihota represented Zimbabwe at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013 and was awarded the Prix Canson in the same year.
