Event Description

In 2023, the Drexel Writing Festival will explore the theme, “em|power,” an idea that encapsulates both power dynamics and the drive for empowerment, particularly for those who have previously been powerless. Featured guests include fiction writer Molly Antepol, author of The Unamericans; Cihuayollotl, trans woman Xicanx poet Moncho Alvarado; Kim Kelly, the author of Fight Like Hell: the untold story of American labor; and Philadelphia Inquirer journalist Helen Ubinas who writes about the impact of gun violence in Philadelphia. In addition, Drexel faculty member Jakeya Caruthers will speak on race, gender, and state discipline; faculty member Travis Curtice will discuss repression and policing.
