LITTLE LIGHTS READING SERIES
I started a biweekly virtual reading series called Little Lights to take book tours online and spotlight BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color), womxn, queer, transgender, and GNC folks. This reading series is a space to celebrate the bright lights, those who light the way and support each other’s shine not only since before the days of 2020 but also as we chart our course onward. Readings are every other Friday night at 7 p.m. EST on zoom.
A bit about Arhm (ah-reum):
Arhm Choi Wild is a queer, Korean-American poet who grew up in the slam community of Ann Arbor, Michigan, and went on to perform across the country, including at Brave New Voices, the New York City Poetry Festival, and Asheville Wordfest. Arhm is a Kundiman fellow with an MFA in Poetry from Sarah Lawrence College, and was a finalist for the Jake Adam York Prize in 2019. Their debut collection of poetry, “Cut to Bloom,” was the 2019 winner of the Write Bloody Book Contest. Their work has been anthologized in Daring to Repair by Wising Up Press and The Queer Movement Anthology of Literatures, and appears in Barrow Street, The Massachusetts Review, Split this Rock, Foglifter, Lantern Review, F(r)iction, and other publications. They work as the Director of the Progressive Teaching Institute and as a Diversity Coordinator at a school in New York City.
