Inner Moonlight is the monthly poetry series for the Wild Detectives! RSVP to meet us in the backyard at 7:30pm on Wednesday March 8th for a live reading from one featured writer, with a brief open mic to follow. Don’t worry, podcast fans! We will record the live show and release it as a podcast episode for y’all. This month we are excited to feature poet Lauren Brazeal Garza!
Lauren Brazeal Garza is a disabled writer and Ph.D. candidate in literature at the University of Texas at Dallas. Her published poetry collections include Gutter (YesYes Books, 2018), which chronicles her homelessness as a teenager. She has also published three chapbooks, including Santa Muerte, Santa Muerte: I was Here Release Me (Tram Editions, 2023), which is a series of fictional interviews with ghosts and is inspired by her experiences as a translator and collector of oral histories. Her work has appeared in Poetry Northwest, Waxwing, and Verse Daily among many other journals. She can be found haunting her website at www.lbrazealgarza.com
Inner Moonlight is presented by The Writer’s Garret on the second Wednesday of every month. Mark your calendar and we’ll see you there!
