Three Poems (and more) | Sea Lion


It’s been a minute, y’all! But I have a cool publication to talk about which is being so generous to have me as a continuous contributor. WHAT.

I would like to talk about Emily Prentice (WAYWARD DAUGHTER), who is local zine queen, fiber artist, creative mind extraordinaire around these Appalachia parts. She creates this ~ lovely ~ zine entitled Sea Lion. I may be a bit biased, but hey, this creation is so high quality you wouldn’t know it’s DIY. But you also do at the same time, because it maintains that charm … It’s just so great.

Projects like Sea Lion are what keep local arts communities alive. It’s what joins artists in an area together, and that’s what I love about Emily’s pursuits.

I can’t wait to keep writing for this little publication! You like activism? Plants? Cute drawings? You’re in the right place.

Three of my poems have been featured so far, entitled “Chestnut Street,” “Interactions Can Occur,” and “In Which I Permitted Observation.” All of these deal with one or more of the following topics: mental health, women’s bodies, and Morgantown, WV.

If this sounds like your cup of tea, check out her zines on her website now. Please support local artists (and read my poems while you’re at it!)
