Maya Owen writes, sings, and hopes to see a whale in real life. Her poems appear (or will) in The Offing, Berfrois, Anomaly, HAD, The Shallow Ends, Muzzle, and elsewhere. Sometimes they’re nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best of The Net Anthology. She reads for Monstering, a magazine by and for disabled women and non-binary people, and volunteers at Lesflicks, a platform for sapphic on-screen content. She’s passionate about the proper etiquette for transporting snails to safety after rain.
