Join us as we launch A TransPacific Poetics, a new collection of poetry, essays, and poetics committed to transcultural experimental witness in both hemispheres of the Pacific and Oceania. The works in ATPP re-map identity and locale in their modes of argument, resituated genres, and textual innovations. A TransPacific Poetics includes Lisa Samuels, Don Mee Choi, Melanie Rands, Jai Arun Ravine, Ya-Wen Ho, Murray Edmond, Susan M. Schultz, Eileen Tabios, Craig Santos Perez, Corey Wakeling, Lehua Taitano, Stuart Cooke, Sean Labrador y Manzano, Barbara Jane Reyes, Myung Mi Kim, and Sawako Nakayasu, with cover art by Dagmar Vaikalafi Dyck, who will also be present for this launch event.


Free & all welcome. Book copies available for a celebratory reduced price of $30 (cash only).
