Jessica Yuru Zhou / 周玉茹 is a poet, writer, researcher, and artist rooting in San Francisco. She enjoys theorizing at the club, ambling in-and-out of the panopticon, and reveling in summery autumns in California. Her poems and essays live amidst a hydra of Tumblr/Twitter accounts, and have found perches with exhibitions at the Asian Art Museum, Gray Area, Southern Exposure; performances for Litquake, Berkeley Poetry Festival, Pride Poets Hotline; publications with or forthcoming in Inverse Magazine, The Ecopoetry Anthology: Volume II, the Los Angeles Times. She thinks of how old her younger child selves have felt, and hopes for all that you feel tenderly toward to be a source of resolute fierceness in turn. Talk with her about diaspora, opacity, networked selves/squads, queering the nuclear family, making worlds together, bell hooks’ love ethic, and finding one another, on and offline.
