Join us in person (or via live-stream) at our friends' place in the Mission, Medicine for Nightmares, as we celebrate three new works from Oakland publisher Dogpark Collective, with readings by Gabrielle Daniels, Maryam Gunja, and Hung Q. Tu. Free.

Gabrielle Daniels was born in New Orleans in 1954 and moved to California at the age of seven. Her grandmother, the late Rev. Ruth Matthews Taylor, was a Spiritualist Minister. Daniels’ essays, stories and poems have appeared in the print and online magazines Big Scream, Equinox: Writing for a New Culture, Kenyon Review, Love You Madly, Mango, Open Space, Poets Reading the News, Rigorous, San Jose Studies, Silver Birch Press, Sinister Wisdom, and Soup, and the anthologies This Bridge Called my Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color, edited by Cheríe Moraga and Gloria E. Anzaldúa, Sister Fire: Black Womanist Fiction and Poetry, edited by Charlotte Watson Sherman, Another Wilderness: New Outdoor Writing by Women, edited by Susan Fox Rogers, and Writers Who Love Too Much: New Narrative Writing 1977-1997, edited by Dodie Bellamy and Kevin Killian. Her reviews have appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, American Book Review, Off Our Backs, and Women’s Book Review. Gabrielle’s book Something Else Again: Poetry and Prose, 1975-2019 has been published in its US edition by Dogpark Collective. Photo credit Ron Kuka.

Maryam Gunja is a Muslim femme agitator and poet living in Los Angeles. Her writing preoccupations include India/Pak partition era diaspora, caste class struggle, and assorted domestic frivolity. She’s been published in Patient OAutostraddle, and other DIY zines. To pay rent, she dons a convincing PMC poker face to lead user research and product strategy for tech nonprofits. Maryam’s book Right to Comfort is new, Spring 2022, from Dogpark Collective.

Hung Q. Tu lives in San Diego, California. He is the author of Verisimilitude (Atelos) and Structures of Feeling (Krupskaya). The New Boma is out now from Dogpark Collective. And do check out Hung Q. Tu in Conversation with Caleb Beckwith, of Dogpark Collective, at Small Press Traffic's latest Traffic Report.
