A poet friend of mine gifted me these books for my birthday. I've been a huge fan of #JoyHarjo for YEARS.

We missed AUTUMN SCHNELL at the Gala but are so happy to have had the chance to learn more about Autumn, whose piece "FemmNDN Commandments" was selected as a finalist in the category of Unpublished Poetry in English (and was met with enthusiastic applause for the title alone!). Autumn Schnell is a queer Gwichโ€™in and Inuvialuit trโ€™iinjoo from Treaty 11 and is currently living on unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh lands while studying at the University of British Columbia in First Nations and Indigenous Studies and Critical Sexuality Studies. Autumn is passionate about Indigenous gender conceptions, contemporary depictions of queer Indigenous bodies in art, and is currently in a process of learning how queer Gwich'in bodies have unique relationships to settlements, land and Treaty. Autumn has curated content for CiTR, Discorder Magazine, HASTAC 2019, the Symposium for Indigenous New Media, and Artspeak Vancouver. You can hear Autumn on "Unceded Airwaves", Vancouver Co-op Radio, "Recoding Relations", and weekly radio show "Acimowin" on CJSR 88.5FM. | Photo courtesy of the author

๐Ÿ’šFIAR 2019 Poetry Resident: Ahimsa Timoteo Bodhrรกn๐Ÿ’š

FIAR is thrilled to welcome Ahimsa Timoteo Bodhrรกn to Cherry Grove this summer as one of our eight residents!

Bodhrรกn is a creative writer and multimedia artist weaving visual, acoustic, performative, textual, and terrestrial techniques. He is the author of two poetry chapbooks: Antes y despuรฉs del Bronx: Lenapehoking (New American Press) and South Bronx Breathing Lessons (Palabrera Press); editor of Yellow Medicine Reviewโ€™s International Queer Indigenous issue and has publications in 22 nations.

This summer Bodhrรกn is planning to map Fire Island through โ€œtwo written/visual/acoustic sequences: 1) queer/trans Indigenous remapping of New York, interweaving narratives of the land, my communities, and histories of colonial violence, white supremacy, and environmental degradation; 2) queer/trans men of color relationship reflections, interpersonal lenses examining how oppression/liberation interpenetrate our lives.โ€ Bodhrรกn received his M.F.A. in Creative Writing (Poetry) from Brooklyn College. He currently lives and works in Tulsa, Oklahoma and was just awarded both the Tulsa Artist Fellowship and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship! โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ–ค Photo by @melissalukenbergh and @tulsaartistfellowship
