Let’s bring all of those sensory and sensual details to the page! This generative workshop will encourage participants to reflect on their favorite (or least favorite) foods and food memories. We’ll read both prose and poetry, and maybe even consider how film about food can serve (no pun intended!) as inspiration. You’ll walk away with inspiration and the beginning of some new work!

This celebration will both be a vibrant reading of works published and a riveting discussion with a portion of the editorial collective that brought this issue to life. The editors will discuss the origins of the issue, touch on the hardships associated with assembling the theme, and reflect on the broader importance of Trans/Feminisms.

Members of the editorial collective participating in the event include: Red Washburn, Sara Youngblood Gregory, Claudia Sofia Garriga-Lopez, and Cassidy Scanlon.

Featured contributors reading from their works published in Trans/Feminisms include: Diandre Williams, Joan Angel Estrada, Ursh Skeet, Alison Lubar, EF Schraeder, Samantha Sapp, and Joe Kadi.
