This month’s online presentation welcomes Shin Yu Pai, Meredith Clark and Arlene Kim.Shin Yu Pai is the author of 10 books, including ENSO (Entre Rios Books, 2020), AUX ARCS (La Alameda, 2013), Adamantine (White Pine, 2010), Sightings (1913 Press, 2007), and Equivalence (La Alameda, 2003). Her essays have appeared in The Rumpus, City Arts, Yes! Magazine, Tricycle, and The Stranger, among others. Her work has been exhibited at the Dallas Museum of Art, The McKinney Avenue Contemporary, The Paterson Museum, American Jazz Museum, Three Arts Club of Chicago, The Center for Book Arts, International Print Center New York, and The Ferguson Center Art Gallery at the University of Alabama. From 2015 to 2017, she served as the fourth Poet Laureate of The City of Redmond.Meredith Clark is a poet and writer whose work has received Black Warrior Review's nonfiction prize and the Sonora Review nonfiction prize. Her writing has appeared or is forthcoming in Phoebe, Gigantic Sequins, Denver Quarterly, Berkeley Poetry Review, Poetry Northwest, and elsewhere. She holds an MFA in writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a B.A. in creative writing from Oberlin College, and is the recipient of grants and residencies from Artist Trust, Art Farm Nebraska, Jack Straw, and the Vermont Studio Center. Her book, Lyrebird, is out now with Platypus Press.Arlene Kim's collection of poems What have you done to our ears to make us hear echoes? (Milkweed Editions) won an American Book Award and was a finalist for the Washington State Book Award. That was before she started questioning poetry's role in her life and her role in poetry - and definitely before the pandemic. Nowadays she, like many of you, spends a lot of time washing her hands, checking her mask supply, overthinking, awkwardly cutting her own hair, feeling anxious, and occasionally finding poems in odd places. She has not baked a damn thing, sourdough or otherwise, this past year because she hates cooking.
