Free Verse: LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs



“Here it is: a dope jam of dictions; a remixed, multicultural, polyphonic dance of vocabularies; a language of high stakes, hi-jinx, and hybridity. TwERK is subversive, vulnerable, and volatile.” —Terrance Hayes

Writer and sound artist LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs presents poems, songs, and myths from her acclaimed debut book TwERK, featuring work concerned with popular media and history, code-switching, and cultural inclusivity. “Diggs’s work is truly hybrid: languages and modes are grafted together and furl out insistently from each bound splice” (PoetryFoundation.org).
