Taylor Sheridan

Taylor Sheridan is a queer poet, a teacher, a visual artist, a worker, an organizer, and a Virgo with a Scorpio Moon. She uses poetry to process emotionally fraught topics like mental health, addiction, and sexuality. Her poems convey an internal journey; they also explore the tenuous nature of our need for intimacy in a traumatized society. She lives with her dog Jupiter on the unceded lands of the Clackamas, Cowlitz, Siletz, and other Indigenous peoples, in so-called “Portland, Oregon.” She is currently in the poetry track of the Portfolio Program at the Independent Publishing Resource Center. “Backtracking” is her first published work.
