STRONG IN THE BROKEN PLACES: POETICS OF THE AFRICAN DIASPORA

October 21, 2021 @ 5:30 PM ET/USA- ZOOM ID: 794 5002 7512 Passcode: 1qxFvk

Andrew Geoffrey Kwabena Moss is an Anglo-Ghanaian writer who specializes in Anansesem, the storytelling tradition of the Akan-speaking people of West Africa.

Andrew is a writer and teacher who has lived in the UK, Japan and currently, Australia. His work seeks to explore and challenge liminal landscapes, complex identities and the social constructs of race. Most recently, Andrew’s poem, Ecology of Healing is featured in Poetry for the Planet and The Best New British and Irish Poets Anthology 2019-2021 by The Black Spring Press Group. He has also been published by Afropean, People in Harmony, Fly on the Wall Press, and Sound the Abeng: Writing Black, Aboriginal & Indigenous Lives (https://www.soundtheabengmarvamcclean.com)

STRONG IN THE BROKEN PLACES is a writing collaborative that stretches across the globe, scripting a narrative with literary warriors who are intentional in writing truth into history, in exposing the ugly truths of social injustice while at the same time offering up the healing power of words. Writers speak from the intimate chambers of their soul to reveal the redemptive power of storytelling and community through words designed to inspire, entertain, and provoke thoughtful responses.
