2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Marion will create a poetry manuscript tentatively titled Austerity, composed of lyric poetry, fragment, and journal-like observation. The poems will explore the relation between the austerity of our current political moment and the ways our emotional life and capacity for compassion are also impoverished. Marion’s hope for the work is that it will open up space for people to experience their own value in a world of white supremacy, patriarchy and capitalism. Marion will share the work at poetry readings in and around Philadelphia, and will make the work available for online download.
