Events & Announcements

 

 

Greetings from the Zoom-o-sphere, Friends!

 

Like most of my fellow writers and professors, I am still conducting a full literary and academic life--but instead of bookstores and classrooms, these adventures are now taking place online. 

 

Below please find some highlights from recent events as well as upcoming readings.

NEXT READING: I'll be reading with Julia Koets on Sunday, September 20th at 4 PM EST as part of our joint lesbian lyric essay book launch featuring her new collection, The Rib Joint: A Memoir in Essays, and my new collection, Just an Ordinary Woman Breathing! This event will take place virtually, hosted by Books and Books in Miami. Stay tuned for log-in information.

 

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: You can watch/listen to a reading and conversation between Joy Ladin and me, hosted by The Betsy Hotel on South Beach, at the link below. Original air date: August 3, 2020

My lyric essay "Perfect Hands" won the 2019 Robert and Adele Schiff Prize in Prose, sponsored by the Cincinnati Review. The print issue is out now, and an excerpt from the essay is featured on CR's website here:

One of the happiest pieces of news I've received in recent months is that my hybrid-forms project P*R*I*D*E won the inaugural Hunger Mountain Chapbook Prize and was released during June 2020 (Pride Month!) in a limited-edition volume with stunning cover designed by Kelly McMahon to honor the victims of the Pulse shooting by name and likeness.

“This collection of poetic microessays is the hybridity we need right now—lyric & narrative, real & imagined, fierce & tender, in love with the world & critical of it, so much fun & deadly serious. I admire Wade’s range of timbres, the ways this collage makes me feel validated & seen, & how much PRIDE makes me hopeful for a better future.”
