Chestina Craig lives in Long Beach, CA with her cat. Her work has been published in Black Napkin Press, The Rising Phoenix Review, KINGS ZINE, L’EPHEMERE Review, Femme Fotale (photography), Button Poetry and others. She has presented her work at The President’s Commission on The Status of Women, The Young Women’s Empowerment Conference, The CSUF Social Justice Summit, Glassless Minds Open Mic, The Santa Cruz Word Church, and more. She also has a bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology, and on occasion pets sharks and hangs out with octopuses. Other talents include winning over the love of cats, eating whole pizzas, and falling in love with the glow of the sunset. She hopes that one day she will only be required to wear gauzy clothing, swim in the ocean’s swell, and get paid to have too many feelings. Chestina has work included in Incandescent Mind: Issue Two and an upcoming chapbook, body of water, published by Sadie Girl Press. Preorder here!
