EK Keith

E.K. Keith shouts her poems on the street corner and takes the mic at bars, coffee shops, and radio stations. She makes her home in San Francisco, but an early life in urban Texas still influences her worldview. Print and online publications feature her work including, Meniscus, Haight Ashbury Literary Journal, Nerve Cowboy, and River, Blood & Corn. E.K. organizes Poems Under the Dome, San Francisco's annual open mic celebration of Poetry Month inside City Hall. E.K. has never fit neatly into any racial, cultural, or ethnic categories which results in her tendency towards social justice and peacemaking. She collects library cards.
