The Diasporic Peoples Writing Collective (DPWC) is hosting a reading and roundtable discussion with author, poet, and educator, Vernon Keeve III, aka, Trey.

Keeve is a Virginia born writer, living and teaching in Oakland. They hold an MFA from California College of the Arts, CCA, and a teaching MA in literature from Bard College. Their full-length collection of poetry, Southern Migrant Mixtape (Nomadic Press), received the PEN Oakland Josephine Miles Award.

Keeve’s Southern Migrant Mixtape is a collection that relays the experiences and observations of a Black, queer man from Virginia who thought they were leaving racism and sexual intolerance behind in the regions where they initially experienced them.

Keeve will take you, heart first, into their journey of growth. Their art is transformative and the perfect entrée to conversations about intersectionality, claiming space, and creativity. And they’ll engage this event's roundtable participants in a discussion on how art can free us. Keeve will talk about how race/gender/and sexuality are focal to their lived experience and activism, and how craft is bedrock to their work’s accessibility.
