30 Poems in 30 Days – Tristan Silverman

“Fiercely honest and yet surprisingly funny,” Tristan Silverman is one of the coutry’s leading performance poets. A 2-time semi-finalist slam poet on Chicago’s team and finalist in the 2010 Women of the World Poetry Slam, she tours routinely throughout the year as a live poet and educator. Silverman writes and performs from the place where biology, politics and humor converge. Tristan’s poetry narrates the humanness of flaw, the fluidity of identity, and the reality of coming of age queer and American. Interrupting the sometimes monotonous and theatrical qualities commonly associated with slam poets, Tristan uses bold imagery, surprising narratives and an unassuming performance style to captivate her audience while letting them interact.

Her work has been published in journals and anthologies including Boxcar Poetry Review, The November 3rd Club, Pedestal Magazine, decomP, and the forthcoming Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation, edited by Kate Bornstein (Seal Press, 2012).
