Cheraé Clark is a recent graduate from the University of Kansas where she studied English and French. Though she is a Kansas native, she was greatly influenced by living in England for two years, where she developed a penchant for accent imitation. Over summers, she helps teach English and creative writing to gifted youth in middle and high school and she moonlights as a personal trainer. She’ll spend her newfound freedom writing and finding ways to help teens in Kansas City find creative emotional outlets. She’s been published in KU literary magazines Comma, Splice and Kiosk and has presented her stories on masculine-of-center queers at KU’s Undergraduate Research Symposium.
