What book, chapbook, performance, or poem by a woman poet published/presented in the last year or two has left you speechless? How might that speechlessness manifest itself visually, sonically, or through another nonverbal medium?
Please create a response to this piece; your response can act like a review, adaptation, homage, investigation, companion piece, Frankenstein, child, or any mash-up of the aforementioned. In August, all responses submitted will be featured as a forum on Delirious Hem.
Curated by K. Lorraine Graham and Becca Klaver.
Are all words banned?
Although the projects should not be text-based, words are not banned.
I want to create a response to a poem published in 2007. Is this too early?
Nope. We mean "published in the last year or two" loosely.
Can I create a response to a book written by:
a) a man?
b) a biological male who identifies as a woman?

a) No. b) Yes. c) Yes, if they self-identify as a woman.
