The Poetry is Political (TPIP) is a poetry reading event that will be held in honor of National Poetry Month. CALYX, Inc. embraces the words of women and other underrepresented voices, and so, too, is the purpose of this event.
Meet our final featured poet, Connie Eggers, and be sure to come out for an evening of poetry with an open mic to follow.
A native of Southern California, Constance Eggers lives in Corvallis and is a past member of the CALYX editorial collective. Before retiring from full-time employment in 2009, she taught English composition and literature to secondary and college-level students for 34 years. Her poems have appeared in Faultline, Jeopardy, The Seattle Review, The MacGuffin, Pudding, The Wilshire Review, Creative Transformation, Eclipse, Sounding, and Mount Hope. Her chapbook, Reliquary, was published by Finishing Line Press in 2012.
