Interview with Liza Bielby about the Porous Borders Festival

Interview with Liza Bielby about the Porous Borders Festival

I sat down this week to chat with my neighbor Liza Bielby about the Porous Borders Festival happening next weekend around the Detroit and Hamtramck border. Liza is part of The Hinterlands, the group responsible for organizing the festival. Read what she has to say, visit the website, and come out to the festival. [Shameless plug] I'm hosting an event called The Breakdown on Saturday May 16th at 8 pm, where anyone with a story to tell, talent to showcase, song to sing, fruit to juggle is invited to perform when the spirit moves them.

Poet Writes Her Way to a Free Home in Detroit: Casey Rocheteau to be celebrated this Friday

Write A House is thrilled to name poet Casey Rocheteau as the winner of its first residency in Detroit. Rocheteau will receive a newly renovated home that is hers to keep, forever. She expects to move from Brooklyn to Detroit in November. “I am elated to have been chosen!” said Rocheteau. “Being granted with this opportunity to take root in a city so rich with history, creativity and tenacity is truly an honor. I look forward to exploring Detroit and getting to know its literary community.”
