Bio:
Mani is a 23 year old Afro-Latino man who has lived in Lexington for 8 years. He still hasn’t figured out if he’s living in the North or the South. He still doesn’t get the whole “horses” thing.
Reason for Signing Up:
It’s been a minute since I last spoke up about what’s really on my mind. It’d be a shame to stay hushed at a time like this.

Sunday, May 31, 2020 @ 9:57pm
Bio:
Andrea has been writing for years, but only found the courage to share with others through LexPoMo! She is a nomad at heart, but for now lives in the heart of Kentucky with her husband, 5 children, 3 dogs, 3 cats, 11 chickens, and one duck. She is a dreamer, deep thinker, and hard core romantic at heart.
Reason for Signing Up:
Because words (poems) are made to be shared & we all need community— especially as creators.
Roger Rabbit

Sunday, May 31, 2020 @ 9:40pm
Bio:
I'm a poet who thinks poetry should matter in the pursuit of social justice and social change, in the direction of a world that respects and embraces diversity, the environment, and the peace. Then again some poetry is just for the hell of it and I write that kind too. When I used to send poems out I used to get published but I don't see the point of name-dropping journals.
Reason for Signing Up:
I am also a prose writer and have mainly been writing prose for quite some time. I would like to get back into writing poetry and think lexpomo will be a good jump-start. I have also been out of touch with the work of other poets and look forward to reading quite a bit.
