Natasha Marin

Natasha Marin is reluctant to call herself a “poet,” so she has opted for other labels like “fuckyocouch black.” She isn’t from Seattle where she lives, which in shorthand indicates that she thinks the so-called Seattle Freeze is code for “people behaving rudely.” She likes to include strangers in her work and is highly likely to engage you in a less-than familiar way on and off the page. She learns through ludic interactions and enjoys expanding her personal aesthetic through exposure to new spaces and new people. Natasha is the author of Milk, creator of “#WomanCentered,” “Red Lineage,” and “Miko Kuro’s Midnight Tea.” She performs “Mad BlackWoman” on Twitter @mikokuro.
