Inhabiting the "Other" When the Heart Needs a Stunt Double

Poet Diane Decillis will read from her new book When the Heart Needs a Stunt Double (Wayne State University Press) via Zoom, followed by a workshop for participants to write their own autobiographical poetry.
The poet explains, "There’s a wonderful German word maskenfreiheit that has no English equivalent – but it alludes to the freedom that comes with wearing a costume mask. It can be a literal mask or metaphorical one. We all wear masks, we all portray an image on social media, we all lie and conceal our true selves." Decillis will show how artists have done this and will inspire participants to do the same.

This program will take place on ZOOM. PLEASE INCLUDE A VALID EMAIL IN REGISTRATION FORM. Participants must include a valid email address in registration form to receive a Meeting ID which will be sent out the day of the event. Please check your spam folder if you do not receive an email.
