About guest poets:

Sarah Nnenna Loveth Nwafor (She and They pronouns) is a queer Nigerian (Igbo)-American Poet/Writer, Educator, Facilitator and Black Feminist who descends of a powerful ancestry. They believe that storytelling and poetry is magick, and they speak to practice traditions of Igbo orature. When they witness, her forebears are pleased. Sarah’s frameworks as a queer Black feminist go with them everywhere. She believes that the reclamation of pleasure is political- is a human right. They believe that healing is political-is a human right; that wellness, freedom and self-determined futures are interlinked. Sarah believes in creating these futures through holistically caring for ourselves within community. Because of these beliefs, Sarah is committed to teaching about race, class, gender, healthy relationships and sexuality as well as working with youth; she believes in using creative writing as a tool of self-exploration and liberation in this process. When Sarah's not writing, teaching or facilitating she's probably sitting under a tree, reading about Love, watching anime, dancing with friends or cooking a bomb-ass meal like the true Taurus she is. Sarah can be found on instagram (@sarahnwafor) or on twitter (@nwafor_sarah). https://www.instagram.com/sarahnwafor/

Bei Jie Si (they/them) is a poet and artist in Austin, Texas. They are a 2017 Write Bloody Contest finalist and have been published in Button Poetry, Write About Now, Muzzle Magazine, The Dialogoist, Nat. Brut, and elsewhere. They spends their time writing, studying, drawing, singing, watching Steven Universe, and eating. https://www.instagram.com/bei.jie.si.art/

Zoë Fay-Stindt (she/her/figuring it out) is a bicontinental poet with roots in both the French and American south. Her work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, and has appeared or is forthcoming in Blue Earth, Winter Tangerine, EcoTheo, and others. https://www.instagram.com/zoefaystindt/

Wryly Tender is a poet and an accidental memoirist. They're a tour de force of awkwardness mixed with all the charm of your very first crush. They hold an MFA in Creative Writing from Antioch University Los Angeles. Prior to their poetry manuscript My Ugly and Other Love Snarls being snatched up by University of Hell, Wryly wrote and published four chapbooks and in the process fell spine over sternum in love with their booklet stapler. https://www.instagram.com/wryly_xder/
