    Information about performers

    Emji Spero is a 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 body in transition. Code-switching between poetry and essay, Spero explores Jose Muñoz’s notion that “utopia exists in the quotidian.”

    Shelley Wong is the author of RARE BIRDS, a poetry chapbook recently published by Diode Editions. She is a Kundiman fellow and lives in Oakland. (https://californiawong.wordpress.com/)
