Upcoming Broadcasts

S. Yarberry is a trans poet and writer. They currently serve as the Poetry Editor of The Spectacle. S. has their MFA in Poetry from Washington University in St. Louis and is now a PhD candidate in literature at Northwestern University. S. is also the author of a new book of poetry A Boy in The City. A Boy in the City interrogates how our bodies both seduce and elude. Told through the lens of an intimate partnership, Yarberry explores the way we inhabit and are simultaneously distanced from our bodies–our loose seams, our disappearances and infinities, our longing among the brilliance and mundanity of the ?streets and lights and strangers? of our cities. The collection feels like an easy Sunday morning a few months after a break-up; a raw nerve, romantic and splintered. Carl Phillips calls Yarberry a ?defiant new voice? who ?writes past the ‘festoonery' of gender and easy binaries.? Mary Jo Bang says the poems in A Boy in the City are, ?incisive, erotic, artfully antiro- mantic and Paul Tran says, ?Yarberry's gift to us is that we can become anything, too.? S.
