2022 Introduction

Hello everyone!

I’m River (they/it) and I’m from the rural reaches of Maine. I’m a queer, cripple, mad, anarchist writer whose work is heavily influenced by those identities. Namely, I write poetry but flash and short stories also happen from time to time.

I spent a decade working as a social worker after graduating college and left the field at the end of 2020. After spending 2021 trying to find new employment, I finally listened to my body screaming that I couldn’t do traditional employment. Thankfully I have a supportive community behind me while I deal with life and disability.

I attempted to participate last year but was unable due to issues outside of my control so I’m excited for this year.
