Cliterati Open No Mic Featuring Qiana Cutts

Event date: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

Charis and Cliterati pair up to present an inviting and fierce open mic & reading series on the 3rd Thursday of every month. This month's feature is Qiana Cutts! Qiana Cutts is a queer Black feminist poet and educator. She describes her debut poetry collection, In Somebody Else’s Blood, as a self-care text that asserts love as a shaping, binding and freeing practice. Explorations of love are staples in her poetry, but she also focuses on her experiences as an eclectic girl raised in the South and examines identity, race, sexuality, and social issues. She has read her work at several Atlanta-area events, including the Decatur Book Festival, Scene Missing, Song Missing, Bleux Stockings Society, and QueerLit.
This is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Literary Event. The Suggested Donation for Charis Circle is $5.

In Somebody Else's Blood is book about love. The poems explore the ways love binds and shapes us. It is about remaining in or getting back to that place where your first love is self-love, where the most important heart you explore is your own, where the comfort of somebody else's blood is secondary to the confidence of your tenderness. This book is life in rhythm and lyrics.
