Inside Voices is a poetry showcase series that allows for the audience to encounter artists in a more intimate setting. The series highlights work that is intentionally experimental and reflective, while allowing space for the quieter emotions, for a more complex perspective.
About the artists:
Kaveh Akbar’s poems appear recently in The New Yorker, Poetry, The New York Times, The Nation, and elsewhere. His first book, Calling a Wolf a Wolf, is just out with Alice James in the US and Penguin in the UK. He is also the author of the chapbook Portrait of the Alcoholic. The recipient of a Pushcart Prize, a Ruth Lilly and Dorothy Sargent Fellowship from the Poetry Foundation, and the Lucille Medwick Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America, Kaveh was born in Tehran, Iran, and teaches in the MFA program at Purdue University and in the low-residency MFA programs at Randolph College.
Anaïs Deal-Márquez is a writer with roots across the U.S.-Mexico border whose work looks at identity, displacement, and memory. She believes stories are their strongest with a good cumbia and a plate of tamales. She is the founder of Border Voices, which uses storytelling and performance to curate shows and conversations that center immigrant and refugee voices of folks of color. She is a 2015 winner in the Loft Literary Center’s Mentor Series in poetry, and has performed at the Loft, Dakota Jazz Club, and Pangaea World Theater. Her essay, “Our Silence Won’t Save Us: Recovering the Medicine in Our Stories,” was published in “How Dare We! Write,” an anthology of writers of color on the writing life and process. She is currently finishing her first book of poetry, a project in conversation with Mexican women in her family that weaves stories across generations around migration and resilience.
Julie Eddy is a singer/songwriter living in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She has been performing since she was 10 years old, both with other musicians and as a solo act. Her debut single “I’m Not Yours Anymore” was featured on radio stations across the country and helped propel her into the next step of her career. Some of her biggest shows include opening for Dan + Shay, Brett Young, & Granger Smith. Julie specializes in acoustic sets and loves the simplicity of being a girl and a guitar. Her latest “Acoustic Live EP” is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Play, YouTube and Pandora.
