Waxing Gibbous: A Magical Open Mic feat. Emji Spero

AT 13TH STREET (410 13th Street)

As the moon moves through these long, cold nights toward fullness on December 3, we invite you to come share your writing about mythmaking, witchcraft, personal rituals, family lore, astrology, the mystery and wonder of small daily encounters, elements, ancestors, transformation, forests & oceans & sensations of awe. This is a night for healers, oracles, midwives, & all kinds of witches. However you define your magic, we want to hear it! 

The evening will begin with featured reader Emji Spero, followed by anyone who wishes to share their work. Please arrive at 6 pm sharp if you would like to sign up! 

Emji Spero is a queer performance artist and writer living in Oakland, California. They are an editor at Timeless, Infinite Light and the author of almost any shit will do. They are currently working on Exhaustion: A Retching, a dry lyric essay that documents the affective weight of the accumulated, subthreshold violences, which daily permeate a non-binary body in transition. Code-switching between poetry and essay, Spero explores Jose Muñoz’s notion that “utopia exists in the quotidian.”
