Liberating LITerary Events for All People and All Ages!
The time for the creation of this publication is made possible by the Academy of American Poets with funds from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the ongoing support of Amherst Media. Further creative development of Mi'ja will be supported in part with generous funding and support from the the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts, in collaboration with MASS MoCA'S Assets for Artists Program. Special thanks to Pregones/PRTT Theater of their on-going generosity, support, and for hosting, producing and funding the NYC Mi'ja book launch and celebration. Special thanks also to Amherst Media and Rhina Valentin, La Reina del Barrio, for on-going media support and documentation. Special thanks to Leah Poller for being an on-going supporter and offering generous hospitality in her Harlem, NYC Arts Salon. Heartfelt thanks to Art for the Soul Gallery, the only Black Woman Founded and Owned Gallery in Western, MA. Inclusive. Diverse. Equitable. Featuring world-class artists alongside those at the early stages of their careers. A community gallery that features interdisciplinary arts. A Mi'ja supporter.
