Vernon Keeve III, aka, Trey, is a Virginia born writer, living and teaching in Oakland. They hold an MFA from CCA and a teaching MA in literature from Bard College. Their full-length collection of poetry, Southern Migrant Mixtape (Nomadic Press), received the PEN Oakland Josephine Miles Award.
Keeve’s Southern Migrant Mixtape is a collection that relays the experiences and observations of a Black, queer man from Virginia who thought they were leaving racism and sexual intolerance behind in the regions where they initially experienced them.
Keeve will take you heart-first into their journey of growth. Their art is both transformative and the perfect entrée to conversations about intersectionality, claiming space, and making art. And they’ll engage roundtable participants in a discussion on how art can free us. Keeve will talk about how race/gender/and sexuality are focal to their lived experience and activism, and craft is bedrock to their work’s accessibility.
