Poetry. LGBTQIA Studies. Laura Buccieri observes, confronts, and explores queer womanhood in her collection ON BEING MISTAKEN. Buccieri writes, "i am the only thing i will carry," but she manages to not only carry us through the implications of a society that "others," but she also drops us into language that resists and jabs at that exact act of "othering." This is an exciting, experimental, and rhythmic voice that creates a space in which we can explore how we are labeled and how we ourselves label. Buccieri doesn't beg for answers but rather urges us to expand our language, assumptions, and ideologies.
Laura Buccieri's work has appeared in Metatron, Prelude, Lambda Literary, Cosmonauts Avenue, and elsewhere. She is the Publicist at Copper Canyon Press & holds an MFA in poetry from The New School. She resides in NYC.Author City: NEW YORK, NY USA
