Join Perugia poets Jacqueline Balderrama, Abby E. Murray, Rebecca Pelky, Ida Stewart, and Lynne Thompson for this Discussion Room panel on linguistic diversity. Description: What community and cultural languages define your work as a writer? Five Perugia poets guide a discussion investigating the challenges of language acquisition and loss, how terms are used as weapons of exclusion in military and civilian spaces, the reclamation and affirmation of mother tongues, and ways of speaking from and for the environment. Explore how linguistic experience intersects with craft in this conversation featuring women poets from one press who represent myriad places and voices.
