JET retells and subverts personal myths and anxieties, as well as sends dispatches to loved ones in this world and other realms. Inspired by the expansiveness of humor, speculative storytelling, zines, chapbooks, plays, and pamphlets, JET’s working on a memoir project that takes on a hybrid of those forms. JET’s a founding member of The Josie Club, a digital experience and weekend retreat for Queer Black Womxn. A MFA candidate at Columbia University’s creative writing program with a Non-Fiction concentration, JET lives in Harlem, though she was raised in New York’s Lower East side. Find JET on Instagram at @izdabes, where she has leaned into her Queer-Fashionable-Auntie-Socialite aesthetic.
