The Poetry Project


Imogen Binnie & Evan Kennedy

Imogen Binnie and Evan Kennedy drive punk sensibility into queer literature at high speed. Maybe they would each contest that description, if punk is a thing of the past. Binnie’s Nevada (Topside Press, 2013; FSG, 2022) and Kennedy’s Metamorphoses (City Lights, 2023) are books filled with raucous sociality, gay lust for life, comic misapprehension, formal variety, urban dramedy. If it’s not punk, it’s something better.

Featuring a guest introduction by Bahaar Ahsan.

This event will also be livestreamed for free on The Poetry Project's YouTube channel.
