Thu, Dec 12, 2019 7:00 PM – Thu, Dec 12, 2019 8:30 PM Winter Poetry ft Edie Roberts, Chelsea Tadeyeske, & Tasha Chopra

Touring poets and creative curators Chelsea Tadeyeske and Edie Roberts are dropping in for one night only as they head to the Cincinnati Art Book Fair. Come hear their confessional, tender poetry. Also featuring local poet Tasha Chopra.

Chelsea Tadeyeske is a poet, performer, and bookmaker from Milwaukee, WI. She is the founding editor of pitymilk press, publishing short-run chapbooks and journals both online and in physical form. Her work sits in the the intersections of shame, trauma, and desire that are rooted in femininity trying to pin down the destructive reverberations of societal expectations and affectations. She has released many chapbooks including her most recent works of poetry, if you bend it backwards nothing really happens (Rabbit Catastrophe, 2016) and we were all born with the right to be angry (bathmatics, 2016). She is currently performing work from a series of short stories titled Princess Diana, due out on bathmatics in Spring of 2019. By tracing comedic edges around uncomfortable and private tragic experiences both on the page and in performance, Chelsea teases out the feels and makes a soft weapon of vulnerability. Her work can be found online at Pretty Owl Poetry, Delirious Hem, Smoking Glue Gun, and Leopardskin & Limes, among others. She is a Virgo sun/Libra rising/Aquarius moon born in the year of the snake.

Edie Roberts is a rabbit with a hat. A genderqueer mouthpiece ponied up to bat, cheeks fat with american anxiety and morale relay. They reside in Detroit, Michigan where folks still talk with you in the grocery line; the hive humming about experiments with cooperation, the skeletons of capitalism, the dream of another way. They believe in self-publishing and making things for yourself. Their work is their own and they own the means of their own production for the most part. Titles include The Roof is On Fire pt.1&2 (2012/2016), The Heel and The Face (2016), Little Book of Shit (2016) and Everywhere You Go (2019). They lend hands and eyes and heart at pitymilk press and run a hapdash production site called bathmatics when there is time and purpose bubbling.
