Powerhouse, world-renowned LGBTQ poet and spoken-word artist Staceyann Chin curates the first full-length collection of her poems. Crossfire collects Staceyann Chin's empowering, feminist-LGBTQ-Caribbean, activist-driven poetry for the first time in a single book.
Staceyann Chin is a well-known spoken-word actor and author with a large following and big presence on social media. She has previously published a successful memoir and gets a lot of invitations to perform her poetry and also many requests from teachers to who teach her work. This will be the first full book-length collection of her poetry published in one volume, essentially a reader of her best work to date. Touring Staceyann to perform her and utilizing her already established profile as an artist will be a key part of selling this book. We plan to include a video of Staceyann performing in our marketing materials as well as possibly develop curriculum to accompany the book since her work is taught in many classrooms already.
