Gabrielle Octavia Rucker is a self-taught writer and poet from the Great Lakes currently living in the Gulf Coast. She is admittedly prone to informal learning styles, “illegible” ways of being and writing, and likes to maintain a general air of mischievousness and willful curiosity in all aspects of her life. Her writing has appeared in various media and publications, including the Sundance Film Festival, Montez Press Radio, the Academy of American Poets’ Poem-A-Day series, Vogue, Dance Lawyer and more. She is a 2020 Poetry Project Fellow and 2016 Kimbilio Fiction Fellow. Her debut poetry collection, Dereliction, is forthcoming from The Song Cave in November of this year (2022).
