OutWrite presents three Canem Fellows: Bettina Judd, Tafisha A. Edwards, and Saida Agostini.
Bettina Judd’s debut collection of poems 'Patient.' won the Hudson Prize and was published by Black Lawrence Press in November 2014. She is a visiting assistant professor of Gender Sexuality and Women’s Studies at the College of William and Mary and has been invited to perform at venues around the world.
Tafisha A. Edwards is a Guyanese-Canadian poet, web-series producer and interpreter of dreams. She is also a poetry editor for Split Lip Magazine, a Cave Canem fellow and currently writing her first collection of poetry ‘Confusing the Wind.’
Saida Agostini is a queer Afro-Guyanese poet and clinician. Her body of work encompasses heartbreak, black love, and the icon Prince; her book-in-progress draws from the intergenerational trauma of Guyana's 1962 Race Riot.
