j.l taylor | LexPoMo 2021



j.l taylor is a native Lexingtonian who has established her love of writing poetry through attending community open-mics. her passion of the arts in all forms propelled her to be an arts administrator and is currently the grants manager at the kentucky arts council. before the pandemic hit, she also started a local poetry open mic, "Poets Down Yonder" and hopes that LexPoMo will encourage her and others to get back on the stage to share when the world is ready.

Reason for signing up:

I signed for the same reason I do every year: motivation. as much as I think and sleep and dream about poems there seems to be less and less time i spend writing them. i hope i will use this space as meditation for my words, to write without judgement, and breath in and breath out my words composedly as possible.
