Otter is creating poems that don't make you tired

patrons

My name is Otter, and I am a genderqueer poet and mess raised in West Philly. My work is honest, raw, and most often centers the inevitable emotion of growth. Here, I post poems at least twice a month with personal histories of the pieces. Short stories, multimedia performances, and live sessions will also be included. I talk too much, but you'll be glad you pledged to listen.

I am a 2015 Brave New Voices World Champion and the 2016-17 Youth Poet Laureate of Philadelphia. I am also the founder and curator of the Voices of the East Coast Project (Penmanship Books, 2017) and the author of The Smoke Is Singing (2018). My work has been selected by publications such as the American Library of Poetry, Title Magazine, and Michigan State University Press, and has appeared in multiple news outlets including Philly.com, CreativePHL.org, Billypenn, Generocity, NewsWorks, and WURD Radio.

If you made it this far, go 'head and show the page some love! No artist can succeed alone, and I am so excited to share this experience with you.
