November Sunday Kind of Love features Sally Wen Mao and Jeneva Stone!

Sally Wen Mao is the author of Mad Honey Symposium (Alice James Books, 2014). Her second book, Oculus, is forthcoming from Graywolf Press in 2019. Her work has won a 2017 Pushcart Prize and is published or forthcoming in A Public Space, Poetry, Black Warrior Review, Guernica, The Missouri Review, Tin House, The Best of the Net 2014 and The Best American Poetry 2013, among others. The recipient of fellowships and scholarships from Kundiman, the New York Public Library Cullman Center, and Bread Loaf Writers Conference, Mao holds an M.F.A. from Cornell University. She is the 2017-2018 Jenny McKean Moore Writer-in-Washington at the George Washington University.

Jeneva Stone is the author of MONSTER, an exploration in poetry and lyric prose of the effects DNA variation has had upon her family, especially her son Robert. Our genetic fabric is monstrous--purposefully shape-shifting and awesome in its effects as it fulfills its evolutionary purpose, to make each of us different. Jeneva's work has appeared in many literary journals, including Poet Lore, Waxwing, jmww and New England Review Digital. Her work in nonfiction has been honored with fellowships from the MacDowell and Millay Colonies. The story of Robert's rare disease is ongoing and you may follow it on Busily Seeking, Redux, both the blog and Facebook page. She and Robert live in Maryland.

Sunday Kind of Love offers a stage for emerging and established poets from the Washington, D.C. area and around the nation. Sunday Kind of Love includes featured poets and an open mic segment. Cohosted by Sarah Browning and Katy Richey. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased online the day of the event or at the door: http://busboysandpoets.com/events/info/get-tickets.
