Description

A live podcast event featuring Armine Iknadossian, HanaLena Fennel, and more with Mike Gravagno.

Born in Beirut, Lebanon, Arminé Iknadossian immigrated to the United States in 1974 to escape the civil war. She is the author of All That Wasted Fruit (Main Street Rag Press), a collection of poems about the sacred feminine. Iknadossian earned an MFA from Antioch University where she was awarded a fellowship from Summer Poetry in Idyllwild. After teaching English for 20 years, Iknadossian wrote United States of Love and Other Poems (2015). Iknadossian is also a founding fellow of Anaphora Writing Residency at Otis College of Art and Design. Find out more at armineiknadossian.com.

HanaLena Fennel was born in Oregon and raised in California. She has spent most of her life surrounded by people but slightly misplaced. Brazenly bisexual and aggressively awkward, HanaLena is a mother of three darling dybbuks, three cats, a hedgehog, a betta fish named Caboose, 2 ghost shrimp, one snail and a dog simultaneously named after a Roman god and an element. After having artwork and poems published in various anthologies and collections (including Moon Tide’s own Dark Ink horror anthology), she is excited about publishing her first full book of poetry. HanaLena is currently an associate editor for the online literary journal, FreezeRay. HanaLena’s weekly prompts, artwork, and support can found on her Patreon.




Writers’ Block is a bi-weekly podcast that highlights the work of writers, poets, scientists, musicians, and more to find the story behind the pieces. Host Mike Gravagno digs into his guests work the same way he digs into pie, voraciously and without pretension, because you don’t have to be high-falutin to enjoy talking about art. Writers’ Block is a joint venture from YourPopFilter.com and Anastamos, Chapman University’s Interdisciplinary Graduate Journal, and is available wherever you get your podcasts.
