In celebration of Pride and Caribbean American Heritage Month, we bring you part one of a special two-part episode featuring Girls Write Now Fellow Sally Familia and Mentee Carissa Ceasor. In this riveting conversation, both our guests talk about what it means to explore their Caribbean ancestry and queerness through writing poetry. Carissa opens with three excerpts from their in-progress poetry chapbook entitled “Messages from the Radical Diaspora”. If you’re all about culture, identity, emotional liberation, and history, this episode is for you.
