Jekeva is a writer, performer, and educator. She is Editor-in-Chief of Word Lit Zine, a based lit quarterly, and owner of Paradise Lost Publishing. Her forthcoming poetry chapbook, Les Amants, hit the shelves this spring; and she is currently hard at work on her first novel, Sovereign. You may have seen Jekeva lecturing at Hugo House, performing improv as a member of CSz Seattle, traveling through space with the improvised Star Trek group, Where No Man Has Gone Before, or twirling in aerial fabrics at The School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts. Jekeva is fascinated with storytelling in all of its many forms. Whether the story unfolds under stage lights or between the covers of a book, she loves falling into the unexpected journey.
