Julie Corrales Features at Palabra!
an evening of poetry hosted by Ted Washington
Julie Corrales will be our featured Artist of the week
Julie is a first-generation American born to immigrant parents. Raised in City Heights, Julie navigated a world of drugs, gangs, and poverty. She became a mother at 15 years old and credits her son and writing with saving her life.
Today, Julie raises two sons, works, writes, studies, and remains politically active in San Diego. She draws on her experiences to advocate for and write about Chicano issues. Her essays have been published in the San Diego Union Tribune and local bi-lingual publication La Prensa San Diego, and her poetry has been featured on La Bloga, a Chicano literary blog. She performs her poetry and spoken word at various art venues in San Diego.
After Julie’s reading we will have an open mic for anyone who wants to read. Everyone is welcome to come and share a poem, song lyrics, reading or a short story or just bring your ears for listening and enjoy the evening. Original poetry is always appreciated. Everyone needs some place to speak their minds and Palabra is that place. We are an inclusive and supportive group that aim to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, positive environment, so all talent levels are welcome.
Doors open at 6:30pm and Poetry starts at 7:00pm sharp! We will have a sign-up sheet available at the counter. Each poet will speak for 3-5 minutes each so that everyone who wants to read can have a chance! Palabra poetry night will be every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month.
