FREE | Breakout Writers Series: Leila Chatti

February 9 @ 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm EST

Breakout Writers Series- Leila Chatti
Join Leila Chatti as she teaches us to use poetic forms to look directly at faith, personal stories, and stigmatized conditions.

About this event

In her early twenties, poet Leila Chatti began bleeding and did not stop. Physicians referred to this condition as flooding. In her debut poetry collection, Deluge, Chatti dissects the two-year struggle with treating the cause of this flooding–the religious images, the shame, the grief.

Spend a night with Chatti as she teaches us to use poetic forms to look directly at issues of faith, personal narratives, and conditions often hidden away.

Leila Chatti was born in 1990 in Oakland, California. A Tunisian-American dual citizen, she has lived in the United States, Tunisia, and Southern France. She holds a B.A. from the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities at Michigan State University and an M.F.A. from North Carolina State University, where she was awarded the Academy of American Poets Prize. Her poems have received prizes from Ploughshares’ Emerging Writer’s Contest, Narrative’s 30 Below Contest, the Gregory O’Donoghue International Poetry Prize, and the Pushcart Prize, among others. She currently serves as the Consulting Poetry Editor at the Raleigh Review and teaches at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she is the Mendota Lecturer in Poetry.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
