Stacy Nathaniel Jackson

Stacy Nathaniel Jackson is a trans poet, playwright, and visual artist of African American and Filipina descent originally from Los Angeles, who began writing after a serendipitous corporate layoff. His artistic practice in multiple forms addresses gender, family history, and conflict emergence. His debut novel The Ephemera Collector is forthcoming from Liveright/W.W. Norton. His work has been published in Electric Literature, The Georgia Review, The Offing, and elsewhere, and has been supported by the Atlantic Center for the Arts, Cave Canem, Millay Arts, the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, and the San Francisco Arts Commission.  He lives in Washington, DC after 30 years in the Bay Area, and is studying European Portuguese in preparation to make a grand escape to Madeira Island if DJT mounts a successful comeback to the White House.
