I have a teeny tiny essay in this new zine: Proof That I Exist: A Daily Write Anthology, printed and edited by Brian Benson. The zine is a compilation of writing created this spring during Brian’s “Daily Write” sessions. We would meet on Zoom and read a poem or short essay together, then Brian would give us a prompt based on the reading which we would write to, in sweet Zoom-y solidarity, for twenty minutes. It somehow felt like bonding with complete strangers (and a few friends) even though we only saw each other’s faces in little squares on a screen. ❤ Knowing we were all writing together at the same time in different parts of the country was truly magical and a lovely loneliness salve during these isolating times. This is a really special zine with 64 awesome contributors and 100% of proceeds from the zine goes directly to the Black Resilience Fund!!!: an emergency fund dedicated to healing and resilience by providing immediate resources to Black Portlanders. If you can purchase a zine or many, for yourself, family and friends, or roommates, or neighbors, please do. If funds are too tight – share the link.
