About the Author

Logen Cure is a queer poet and professor. She is the author of three chapbooks: Still, Letters to Petrarch, and In Keeping. She curates Inner Moonlight, a monthly reading series for The Wild Detectives in Dallas. She earned her MFA in Creative Writing from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She lives in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas.


"With gentle, simple language, Logen Cure invokes images so rich that you can almost taste them. Her love of words and her ability to tell a story reveal her to be a poet with a novelist's sense of narrative and characterization. For instance, in 'Camera Shy, ' she deftly paints a picture of high school angst and joy so evocative that it transports us in time--summing up our shared experience of adolescence in a few heartbreakingly beautiful images. Logen Cure's poetry shakes readers in a way that can't be logically explained, but that you can feel in your bones, and in your memories." --Wess Mongo Jolley, Author, Editor, and Founder of the IndieFeed Performance Poetry Channel

"Every once in a great while, a poetry reading can freeze an audience in their seats. This happened to me on a sweltering Fort Worth evening... One thing was certain: when poet Logen Cure had finished with the audience, you could've heard a pin drop... Afterward, the friend who'd accompanied me leaned over and said, 'You know how I said I didn't like poetry? I think I was wrong.'" --Camille Griep, author of New Charity Blues
