Palace Poetry Group presents featured reader Chen Chen, the author of When I Grow Up I Want to Be a List of Further Possibilities, winner of the A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize and out now from BOA Editions. Chen’s work has appeared in Poetry, The New York Times Magazine, and The Best American Poetry. He received fellowships from Kundiman, Lambda Literary, & the Saltonstall Foundation. He earned his MFA at Syracuse University & is currently pursuing a PhD at Texas Tech University. Chen started to write poetry because he couldn’t sing or draw or dance. Chen continues to write poetry because he wants to keep trying to create something beautiful and true, however he can.
