Event Description

Join us for a reading of Fukien amazing poetry by Monica Ong and Wo Chan in Brooklyn.

Monica Ong is a visual artist and poet whose hybrid image-poems juxtapose diagram and diary, bearing witness to silenced histories of the body. She completed her MFA in Digital Media at the Rhode Island School of Design and is also a Kundiman poetry fellow. Her newly released debut collection, Silent Anatomies, was selected by poet and 2014 Guggenheim Fellow Joy Harjo as winner of the Kore Press First Book Award in Poetry.

Wo Chan is a queer Fujianese immigrant living in Brooklyn. Recipient of fellowships from the Asian American Writers Workshop, Poets House, Kundiman, and Lambda Literary. Wo's work has been published (and forthcoming) in The Margins, cream city review, BARZAHK, and VYM Magazine. Wo is also a member of the Brooklyn-based drag alliance, Switch n’ Play, and has performed at venues including Brooklyn Pride, Princeton, The Trevor Project, and the Architectural Digest Expo.
