POET, ARTIST, AND CULTURAL ORGANIZER Vanessa Huang weaves poemsongs with moments of creative aliveness and transformative encounter, color, and texture in call and response with kindred spirits who dream and make worlds where each and all of us are free. A finalist for Poets & Writers’ 2010 California Writers Exchange Award, Vanessa’s poetry and practice inherit teachings from the prison abolition, migrant justice, gender liberation, transformative justice, disability justice, and reproductive justice movements.
Vanessa’s work and writings have conversed through performance and ritual, moving pictures and digital media, letterwriting, handcrafted letterpress prints, and a range of activist media and national print and online publications, including Revolution Starts at Home: Confronting Intimate Violence Within Activist Communities (South End Press, 2011), Captive Genders: Trans Embodiment and the Prison Industrial Complex (AK Press, 2011), and Feminist Studies.
