Image: Photo of Brittany Meyer performing at Miss Spoken at the Gallery Cabaret. The reader stands on-stage, smiling and speaking into the microphone while looking out at the audience. Meyer’s hands are raised in expression; one hand holds loose papers and the other is open. Meyer wears a mustard-gold cardigan open over a black turtleneck, a dark patterned skirt over dark leggings, and glasses. The reader appears small near the center of the frame. Painted on the stage wall behind the reader is a scene showing Chicago’s skyline, as if viewed from behind a stone wall. In the foreground, the words “Gallery Cabaret” are partially visible at the top of the frame and the backs of some audience members’ heads are visible at the bottom. Photo by Sarah Joyce.
