KB is from Stop Six, Fort Worth, Texas. They are a Black queer nonbinary poet, educator, organizer, and lover of most plants/people. They want to be your friend as well as your reminder to think in abundance. They have words published in Cincinnati Review, The Offing, ANMLY, and other equally pretty places. Their chapbook How To Identify Yourself with a Wound (Kallisto Gaia Press, 2022) won the 2021 Saguaro Poetry Prize. It was written with support from workshops with Lambda Literary, In Surreal Life, The Watering Hole, The Hurston/Wright Foundation, The Speakeasy Project, and Winter Tangerine. They are currently a PEN America Emerging Writers fellow and an African American Leadership Institute - Austin fellow.

When not on stage or in the page, they serve as Founding Executive Director of Interfaces, Co-Founder/board member of Embrace Austin, community advisory board member for Texas Health Action, and educator in various settings.

-Poetry Performances (I've made crowds laugh, cry, etc; themes I've written & talked about are race, transness, queerness, mental health, relationships/love, the body, ecology, religion, and place/gentrification)
