BIO

Howdy, I'm Juliette and this site is a hub of my ~professional~ works.

I'm a poet and occasional fiction writer with an MFA in Poetry from Oregon State University.

 

I'm also:

-a rapscallion

-a sister/daughter

-a member of the meme gentry (dank meme lord)

-a lover of thicc cats & overpriced coffees 

- in a torrid affair with both the moon AND the em dash

As an artist, I use myths and memes to navigate this queer Black existence in the cluster of chaos that is the United States.

I think a bridge exists between popular culture and archaic stories that I mean to put on my captain's cap and navigate.
