This episode of Electric Poetry features Emily Uduwana and aired on September 15th, 2020. About the poet: Emily Uduwana (she/her) is a California-based poet and short fiction author with recent publications in Stonecoast Review, Miracle Monocle, and Rubbertop Review. In part due to her role as a Ph.D. student with an emphasis on gender and women’s history in nineteenth-century California, her work frequently touches on issues of heterosexism, gender, and sense of place. Over the course of the last year, she took part in the Autry Museum’s Revealing Women in the Archives Discovery Fellows program, a series of workshops co-hosted with WriteGirl and centered on introducing women writers to the archival process. In July of 2020, Uduwana was selected as the featured poet of Neologism Poetry Journal’s thirty-eighth issue. Her first two poetry chapbooks, "Knotted" and "An Expedition to the Desert of Andromeda", will be released in the fall of 2020 from OrangeApple Press and Roaring Junior Press.
