11/29/17 Show Notes ft. Sáshily Kling

This week’s show features the poetry of Sáshily Kling and a musical playlist she’s curated to go with her work!

BIO

Sáshily has a fascination with photography, storytelling, and art. She has traveled extensively and has found that art, in its many forms, is universal. She is a graduate from Norfolk State University with a Bachelor’s in Mass Communications and is currently enrolled at the University of Hawaii at Manoa  in pursuit of a Master’s in English. Sáshily has been published in NSU’s Literary Journal, The Norfolk Review, and won first prize in 2015. When she moved to Hawaii she was seen in print in Metro HNL and had many articles published in a community magazine. Recently, two of her poems, Dancing Barefoot on Dirt Paths and The Name I almost Had, were selected for the May 2017 Fredericksburg Literary and Art Review (Anthology). This is Sáshily’s first poetry chapbook. She explores her history, both through genealogy and identity, and realizes that we are all connected through our family histories and struggles. Through this process she understood that she had been writing this book all along and she is satisfied that she is able to share her stories with you.
