Jonah Mixon-Webster

Poet, educator, and sound artist Jonah Mixon-Webster gives a community reading of his poetry — both published works and those in-progress. A Flint, Mich. native, Mixon-Webster’s works reflect the urgency of the human condition as it relates to class, race, sexuality, and social issues. Mixon-Webster’s 2017 work Stereo(TYPE) explores the poetics surrounding the water crisis in Flint, systemic racism, sexuality, and class. Stereo(TYPE) was selected for the 2017 Sawtooth Poetry Prize for its frank look at stereotypes through a character’s experience and mythology.
