Keli Stewart

Poet from Chicago reads from a new manuscript entitled, Good as Here

October 17, 7pm

Augusta Savage Gallery


Keli Stewart’s new work entitled Good as Here is a journey through rites of passage, and a poetic meditation on the intersections of race, class and gender. She explores the politics of history, identity and place to give meaning to the unvoiced. Keli Stewart’s stories, plays and poems have appeared or are forthcoming in numerous journals and books. She was awarded the 2010 Adrienne Reiner Hochstadt Award, and placed first in 2010 Gwendolyn Brooks Poetry Award from the Illinois Center for the Book Emerging Writers Prize, among others. She is a double recipient of the Archie D. and Bertha H. Walker Foundation Scholarship from the Fine Arts Work Center and also an alum of the Voices of Our Nation Arts Foundation and Callaloo Summer Writing Workshops. Recently nominated for a Ragdale 3Arts Fellowship, she received her BA in Fiction Writing from Columbia College and an MFA from Chicago State University. She is the mother of two wonderful sons and has recently completed her debut poetry collection.
