Hen House at Home: Poetic Identity

Red Hen Press welcomes poets Nicole Stellon O’Donnell and Benjamin Saltman award winner M. Soledad Caballero in this virtual poetry special! Nicole and M. Soledad will discuss poetry and memory, history, and identity. We’ll explore a poet’s way of connecting with themselves, their pasts, and reconciling their identities as they juggle the various “roles” they play in their lives.
