Teresa Mei Chuc
Poet and author of Red Thread
Join Sex and Politics Friday Edition as we interview poet Teresa Mei Chuc about her new book and the challenges of getting published. Teresa was born in Saigon, Vietnam and immigrated to the U.S. under political asylum with her mother and brother shortly after the Vietnam War while her father remained, for nine years, in a Vietcong “re-education” camp. She teaches literature and writing at a public school. Her poetry appears in journals, including EarthSpeak Magazine, Miller’s Pond, National Poetry Review, Rattle, and Verse Daily. Red Thread is her first full-length collection of poetry.
Guest host, poet and author Ed Kearns, joins us again this week for an extra spicy literature hour that includes acoustic guitarist Craig Kierce, Kathleen Stansell with The Daily Dumpster Dive, and Eva Jay with our arts update.
