Movement Love with Muse/A
a yoga series
Atlanta Contemporary presents Movement Love, a yoga series presented by Maggie Benoit and a collaborating artist. October’s collaborating artist is Muse/A.

Maggie Benoit’s objective is to produce enriching experiences that bolster the arts alongside entrepreneurial efforts in Atlanta. Her focus is to strengthen a community driven network, a conversation, a connection to resources and a place for beings to express constructively. This way the individual and community grow by staying curious, asking questions, creating solutions, as well as learning constructs of both personal and social space. The question arises, “how does one define the ability to connect the intimately personal to another tangibly?” Such an expression means finding love for self, love for another, love for something that holds meaning. Sharing said experience defines a landscape of varied media through intentional integration of work and life.
Muse/A (myoo-zay) is a literary journal publishing poetry, lyric essay, and galleries of art. We publish lyrical, playful, moving, inventive, unique, experimental, honest, linguistically innovative, collaborative, economical, attentive, vested, clever, touching, REAL work by emerging writers. We occasionally take chances on established artists. Founded in 2015, Muse/A launched its first online publication in April of 2016. Since then, Muse/A has published two online issues and one print issue annually, culminating in ten (!) issues. After spending this fall re-branding and focusing on our local art community, Muse/A will return with Online Issue XI in the spring of 2020 and release our first book as a press.
