Associated Writing Programs Annual Conference, Chicago, Illinois

This was a panel of poets, including Katherine Hoerth, Laura Cesarco Eglin, and Maria Miranda Maloney.  We are all associated with Mouthfeel Press and proposed the panel to the conference organizers. 

Border Bodies — Womanhood In Verse: Our diverse panel features women poets from the Texas/Mexico Border and other borders dedicated to broadening poetic conversations about borderland identities, womanhood and the border, and the borderland body. In any contested space i.e., geographic, cultural, sexual, racial, or literary, women must claim their own definitions of womanhood, their physical/sexual/spiritual bodies, and their poetic languages with their own definitions of aesthetics and relation to culture and history.
