Excavations: A reading and conversation with Wendy C. Ortiz, Melissa Febos, and Melissa Chadburn

“I write to know what I think,” wrote Joan Didion. Sometimes we also write to know what we feel, who we are, and what the hell happened. Wendy Ortiz, Melissa Chadburn, and Melissa Febos are three such excavator artists. From investigative journalism to dream narratives to lyric essays, these queer writers traverse genre, subject, and the many facets of selfhood in search of insight.
