Holly Amos is an animal rights advocate and vegan. She is the author of the full-length poetry collection Continual guidance of air as well as the chapbook This Is a Flood, both from H_NGM_N BKS. Currently living in Chicago, she is the editorial assistant for Poetry and a poetry editor for Pinwheel.

The political IS personal: creating compassionate readers to make the world better. We’ll look at poems by Emily Jungmin Yoon, Beyza Ozer, Kiki Petrosino, and sam sax that push for social change by focusing on the “I.”

Drop in, have poems critiqued, and participate in an ongoing discussion of poetry and poetics. Sessions are free and open to the public, and no registration is required.

Bring 15 or more copies (2 page limit) of a poem you want critiqued.

This project is partially supported by grants from: Poets & Writers, the Illinois Arts Council and The MacArthur Fund for Arts and Culture at the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
