Lavinia Moves to New York
Lavinia Moves to New York (Underground Voices, 2017) is an e-chapbook about a biracial Black/white theatre grad who moves from her conservative, small town in rural Virginia to New York City to pursue her career in costume design. I wrote all of the poems contained in the book and also created the cover art.
In his review of the chapbook for Whale Road Review, Zeke Jarvis wrote, "From the deft incorporation of humor to the thoughtful use of the intersections between theater, racial dynamics, and gender assumptions, Stoddard rewards readers in both subtle and direct ways." Read the full review here.
