Liminal: A Reading (Part of Spring Writes)

Part of Spring Writes! Liminal is a group reading of folks who resist the constraints put on creativity in the academic context or reject academia entirely. The ways we’ve felt like outsiders or outsiders inside (academia) are vast and deep as is the way our work connects. When the world outside can favor cold and magicless capitalism, we prioritize warmth and when we read together, we create a space that casts its own glow.

Many of us are working class or were raised that way and navigate a rhetoric in our chosen path that is often not inclusive of our experiences. Many of us are keeping the magic bright and alive up on the hill. Whatever is true, we are not defined by anything outside of our own making. The readers of this series are actively building a bridge between the colleges in Ithaca and the community of Ithaca.  Elie Piha, Melissa Tuckey, nicole v. basta, Winniebell Xinyu Zong, and Briel.
