Monica Ong

POETRY OFF THE PAGE: HYBRIDITY AS CREATIVE PRACTICE, COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT, AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Monica Ong is the author of Silent Anatomies (2015), selected by Joy Harjo as winner of the Kore Press First Book Award in poetry. A Kundiman poetry fellow and MFA graduate in Digital Media at the Rhode Island School of Design, Ong has been awarded residencies most recently at the Millay Colony, the Fine Arts Work Center, and Yaddo. Monica currently serves as the User Experience Designer at the Yale Digital Humanities Laboratory.

In her GIDEST seminar, Monica Ong will explore the driving questions that inform her process as a visual poet who makes work for the page, gallery, and beyond. Learn how design thinking and welcoming the hybridity of an interdisciplinary career has shaped her approach to bringing poetry to a broader public and establishing professional sustainability that supports experimental practice.
