Julian Mithra

Julian Mithra hovers between genders and genres, border-mongering and -mongreling. Winner of the 2023 Alcove Chapbook Prize, Promiscuous Ruin (WTAW) twists through labyrinthine deer stalks in the imperiled wilderness of inhibited desire. An experimental archive, Unearthingly (KERNPUNKT, 2022) excavates forgotten spaces. They’re cobbling together a record of trans*masculinity in a speculative Philadelphia, 1829, where natural scientists rival evangelical millenarianists for insight into the sublunary and sublime. In the Bay, they peregrinate from sniffing rocks to folding paper.
