Up My Spot Trio

Up My Spot celebrates poetry that queers language, explores modes of representation, and creates sites of non-normative histories, identities, and intimacies. It features three graduating poets from Eugene Lang of The New School, Mia BrunerNick Von Kleist, and Zee Whitesides.


Mia Bruner grew up in Los Angeles and moved to New York in 2009 to attend  The New School where she co-founded The Akilah Oliver Memorial Reading at Eugene Lang College with Jamila Wimberly. She has  worked with the Belladonna* Collaborative, a hub of feminist literary action, since 2009. 

NVK grew up in the small town of Phoenix, NY. His work in poetry, performance, and installation aims to conglomerate medieval, rural, academic and grindr cultures into a surreal experience of overarching queerness.

 

Zee Whitesides is a poet and musician from Radcliffe, Kentucky. Her work aims to recreate languages with new syntaxes and grammars, resist received cultural representations, and rethink how our intimacies are made for us by cultures.
