Poets Wendy Trevino and Melissa Merin
October 30 @ 7:00 pmfree
Wendy Trevino was born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas. She lives in San Francisco, where she shares an apartment with her boyfriend, friend & two senior cats. She has published chapbooks with Perfect Lovers Press, Commune Editions and Krupskaya Books. Brazilian no es una raza – a bilingual edition of the chapbook she published with Commune Editions – was published by the feminist Mexican press Enjambre Literario in July 2018. Her first book-length collection of poems will be published by Commune Editions in September 2018. Wendy is not an experimental writer.
Melissa has been writing since she could hold a crayon. She is established as a parent, a lover & partner, a queer, an anti-authoritarian and a consistently retiring punker. She is too Black to ever be considered a snowflake. Melissa believes in utilizing a diversity of tactics to build the world we need; one of her favorite tactics is writing. Melissa is a long-time educator and agitator and has never been able to get it together to “publish”, though many zines and many blogs tell the story of trying. Melissa in no way identifies as butch and she recently bought a new impact drill and sawzall.
