I'm a later-in-life emerging queer feminist writer of color. I've been blogging for several years, and have recently rediscovered my absolute love of exploring life and the world through words and language.

I'm mainly working in the realm of creative and narrative nonfiction, bordering on but not quite memoir.

I'm excited to join this community!

I am a queer, non-binary (they/them) writer living in New Jersey. I've always been interested in writing YA, but I'm also deeply invested in CNF, especially personal essay and memoir, and reading and writing true stories with heart. I'm looking for a group of queer writers to connect with, write with, workshop with, and grow with.

Pocket Samovar is an international literary magazine dedicated to underrepresented post-Soviet writing, art & diaspora. We originated in 2019 as a group of Jack Kerouac School students influenced—but not determined—by our Soviet cultural memory. As a multilingual print and online publication, we aspire to serve as a virtual tearoom, contributing to the dialogue between North American and Eurasian literary community and expanding the possibilities of writing.

I've written my first fiction novel, which I'm currently still in the process of editing. It's called The In-Between. Here's my elevator pitch: Dream machines show users more than their nightly visions as their consciousness is propelled into a parallel reality.

homecoming poet

I write to share my experiences and connect to others. I am an experimental writer that enjoys any and all forms, including none, and am highly collaborative. I am looking for a community to connect with to improve my writing and refine my manuscript for my first poetry book, Homecoming. I have been published in Sinister Wisdom, a multicultural lesbian lit mag for which I volunteer writing book reviews and editing the website among other things. I am a student of Social Work at Rutgers in my third semester and plan to work with youth.
