Craft of Writing Talk with Tommy Pico: We're Still Here! - The "New" Native American Renaissance & the Power of Representation
Listen, I don't really know anything and that's okay. I like it that way. But one thing I DO know is that when we're in charge of telling our own stories, we tell much more interesting ones. So this is kind of going to be about that, and is mainly a craft talk about how I can't give a craft talk. Strap in, friends. Strap in.

Tommy "Teebs" Pico '06 is the author of the books IRL, Nature Poem, Junk, Feed, and myriad keen tweets including "sittin on the cock of the gay." Originally from the Viejas Indian reservation of the Kumeyaay nation, he now splits his time between Los Angeles and Brooklyn. He co-curates the reading series Poets with Attitude, co-hosts the podcasts Food 4 Thot and Scream, Queen! and is a contributing editor at Literary Hub.

This event is colloquium credit eligible.
