(Meet Mago Contributor) Melissa Austin

Melissa AustinMelissa B. Austin is a poet, educator, activist, and student, from El Paso, TX. She has a passion for poetry and writing, of course, but also for education and community. One of her primary interests is the point where these things can effectively intersect. She is interested in identity, place, faith and queerness, bodies, memories illness, roots, science and nature. Everything is important, and everything is worth examining and exploring. She plans to continue writing, performing, and teaching, wherever life takes her. The future is there to unlock, and she hopes to build a life in it, filled with love and light, plants and animals, and a little home to call her own, somewhere in this big big world.

One thought on “(Meet Mago Contributor) Melissa Austin

  1. This poem is the first of Melissa’s that I encountered, in Spring of 2013. I became an immediate fan. Later I bought her chap book, and my respect grew. Now I’ve heard her read and seen her perform a few times, and I can say, ésta mujer is the real thing, y’all.
