I’m Jesse Rice-Evans. I’m a queer Southerner and Andromeda galaxy poet with a B.A. in Literature, Creative Writing, and Africana studies from the University of North Carolina at Asheville, where I taught a groovy creative writing workshop on multi-genre narratives and worked as a consultant & coordinator in the Writing Center. I also hosted several writing groups, including Redaction and Red Writers—a feminist space for conversation and prose poetry.
I am currently the nonfiction editor of Identity Theory and the author of Soft Switch, a chapbook forthcoming from Damaged Goods Press. I’ve curated and directed several literary reading series in North Carolina and am now based in Brooklyn, NY and enrolled in the Language & Literacy M.A. program at the City College of New York. I also teach First-Year Composition at CCNY.
