Important Announcements and Events

Poetry@SLCC proudly welcomes poets and members of the Diasporic Vietnamese Artists Network (DVAN), Diana Khoi Nguyen and Dao Strom to SLCC's South City campus for two events. 

Tuesday, March 24, 6:00 -7:00 pm Art Exhibit Opening in the George S. and Dolores Dore Eccles Art Gallery in the Center for Arts and Media:

"She Who Has No Master(s)" is a project of multi-voiced collectivity, hybrid poetics, encounters, in-between spaces and (dis)places of the Vietnamese diaspora. Through a collaborative art and writing process this project brings together voices of women/womxn writers of the Vietnamese diaspora. "She Who Has No Master(s)" initiated in 2015 as a group of Vietnamese women writers (and we include in this designation: cis, queer, trans, nonbinary) who in coming together aim to express the diversity and complexity of our diasporic experiences and perspectives. 

Following the opening, the artists will be doing a reading and book signing at 7:00 pm in the Multipurpose Room. 

Diana Khoi Nguyen is the author of Ghost Of (2018), which was selected by Terrance Hayes for the Omnidawn Open Contest. In addition to winning the 92Y “Discovery” / Boston Review Poetry Contest, 2019 Kate Tufts Discovery Award and Colorado Book Award, she was also a finalist for the National Book Award and L.A. Times Book Prize. A Kundiman fellow, she is currently a writer-in-residence at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and teaches in the Randolph College MFA. 

The event is free and open to the public.
