Poetry and Music with Duy Doan, Skylar Kergil, and Poor Eliza


Duy Doan

Vietnamese American poet born in Texas. He is the author of the forthcoming collection We Play a Game, winner of the 2017 Yale Series of Younger Poets Prize. A Kundiman fellow, he received an MFA in poetry from Boston University, where he serves as director of the Favorite Poem Project. Duy loves cats, soccer, and dance.

Skylar Kergil is a transgender singer-songwriter and poet who shares his stories through simple progressions and complicated lyrics. According to Billboard, he is one of eleven transgender and non-binary musicians to keep an eye on, writing that his music has a folk sound that sends a statement. He is a Boston native, often found nearby cats or listening to the lives of queer youth.

Boston-based, Korean-American songwriter Poor Eliza engages audiences with her intimate, vocal vibrato, dynamic songwriting, and full band. Inspired by the haunting melodies of songwriters like Damien Rice and Kathleen Edwards, she uses her lyrics to challenge her sense of self, how she is perceived, and the disappointments surrounding identity. She is currently working on her second album and her first set of tours, which are planned for February, April, and June of 2018
