Jasmine Tabor (they/them + tw: @poetjasmi) is a Black queer writer from the deep south and a graduate Mellon Mays Fellow and Edith A. Hambie Poetry Prize Recipient of Spelman College C'21. They write about healing, mourning, and the praxis of transformation; they juxtapose Black childhood and elderhood through photography and writing. Jasmine is a dreamer and, in being so, they spend a lot of time reconnecting with their childhood self by spending their conscious hours walking through dreamland. Their dreams consist of writing when it's inconvenient, quiet mornings spent with the stereo turned down low, and solemn art. Works appear (or are forthcoming) in/on Poets.org, Agnes Scott Literary Journal, Abolition Feminism Journal, Stellium Literary Magazine, among others.
