Issue 23.2 Launch Party

Yemassee's Issue 23.2 Launch Party was a success. The space was clean and bright. The refreshment spread was overflowing. And the readings were superb! We'd like to thank the Columbia Museum of Art for hosting us and our readers, poet Alexis Smith, author Adam Padgett, and poet Monifa Lemons, for gracing us with some good words.

The new issue disintegrates us. (That's a bifurcated heart, by the way.)


Our emcees for the night were Maya Marshall and Ethan Fogus.


Poet Alexis Smith, visiting from Georgia, started the reading off with "We Met in a Meadow" by Chance Castro.


Author Adam Padgett read "Air Pressure" by Evan Allgood.


Poet Monifa Lemons read "Qa'pla" by Candace Wiley.


Thank you to our lovely crowd for coming out!
