Pages Bookshop says
Come and meet the first winner of Write A House, Casey Rocheteau, and talk with her about her debut poetry collection, The Dozen! Cornetta Lane will be with us for the conversation with Casey.

This book of poems is intended as a game that grows outward. The idea is to reinvent the dozens and juke what is truly oppressive about the world. The Dozen is also literal: 12 poems in each of four sections, playing off of each other, scraping against each other messily, harmonizing, clowning each other and sometimes themselves. Above all, The Dozen is intended as an invitation to unwind the clocks, shake off the shame we learned as kids, stop talking about other people’s mamas, and call out the things in our culture that are so ugly they turned Medusa to stone.

THE AUTHOR: Casey Rocheteau was born on Cape Cod and raised as a sea witch. She was the recipient of the inaugural Write A House permanent residency in Detroit in 2014. She has attended Callaloo Writer’s Workshop, Cave Canem, and Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference in Sicily. She is an Artist in Residence at InsideOut Literary Arts in Detroit and an editor at The Offing.
