Vata & the Vine

Vata & the Vine is a collaboration between poet/musicians Evan Karp and Maw Shein Win. The first poet laureate of El Cerrito (2016-2018), Maw is the author of Invisible Gifts: Poems (Manic D Press, 2018), the chapbook Score and Bone (Nomadic Press), and a second full-length forthcoming from Omnidawn in Fall 2020. She often collaborates with other artists and along with Amanda Chaudhary is electronic spoken word duo Pitta of the Mind. Evan is the creator of Quiet Lightning and Litseen, through which, along with columns in the San Francisco Chronicle, KQED, SF Weekly, The Rumpus, and SF/Arts, he has elevated the SF/Bay Area literary world for the past 10 years. With his brother Miles, Evan combines words and sounds as the band Turk & Divis, which in 2018 released its second album Quiet Lightning featuring musical scores of 50 Bay Area authors performing their own work live.
