About the Author
Jae Nichelle is the author of the poetry chapbook The Porch (As Sanctuary); the inaugural poetry winner of the John Lewis Writing Award from the Georgia Writers Association, and one of few people from Lafayette, Louisiana who has never met the singer Cupid. A slam poetry champion, her spoken word has been featured by Write About Now, Speak Up Poetry Series, and Button Poetry.
Reviews
Fans of fresh, accessible poetry in the lineage of Staceyann Chin and Black Girl, Call Home will love spoken word poet Nichelle's newest collection. It's a loud, exuberant celebration of Black womanhood, queer love, and lives stitched into wholeness despite legacies of violence, trauma, and religious anti-gay bias. Wise, tender, and funny, these conversational poems create a joyful, holy space for anyone who has felt othered and alienated by traditional religious practices. (Laura Sackton, Buzzfeed News)
"Nichelle's experience of growing up in the South as a queer Black woman is relayed to luminous effect in this collection, which dives deep into the effects of religious trauma and suggests a less-fraught, more individual relationship with the divine." (Emma Specter, Vogue)
