No, Dear, publisher of chapbooks by emerging writers and a hand-bound journal, marks ten years of publishing New York City’s finest poets. To celebrate, three interdisciplinary poets/artists published by No, Dear (Issues 7, 9, 11 & 15) present new works, followed by a brief discussion. Featuring Amber Atiya, Mike Lala, Legacy Russell, and Bianca Stone.
No, Dear aims to bring together the voices of New York City poets who might not otherwise be in dialogue: both emerging and established poets from diverse backgrounds who are living and writing in New York City’s five boroughs. We aspire to disrupt a field that has historically privileged white patriarchal perspectives by building a publication and communal/critical dialogue that strives to be largely representative of women-identified poets, and poets of color and of all gender orientations.
