Jasper (they/them) is a Memphis-based author, humorist, poet and editor at Focus Magazine. Their work has been featured in The Offing, Oldster Mag, Huffington Post, Bitch Mag, anthology book OUTSIDE THE XY, and many others. Jasper currently runs two awesome newsletters—one self-titled, with the hopes of bringing biweekly whimsy to people's inboxes, and the other called HERE TO COMPLAIN, where annoyed black and brown folks share their microaggressive work stories. They also mentor at the Sam & Devorah Trans Youth Project. Jasper's chapbook, A FLAMBOYANCE, is out now with Bottlecap Press, and their YA fantasy novel, JUNIPER LEAVES, is available where books are sold.
