Author: Jos Charles

Jos Charles is a trans poet, writer, agitator, and founding- editor at THEM—the US's first trans literary journal. After receiving a Bachelor of Music in Composition at Biola University's conservatory—a private Christian university in Southern California, where they were involved with queer, trans, and gender equity on campus—they received an MFA in Poetry from the University of Arizona. Among their awards are the 2015 Monique Wittig Writer's Scholarship and being chosen as a reader by the City of West Hollywood Cultural Affairs for their 2013 One City, One Pride. Their publications include poetry with Action Yes, Denver Quarterly, BLOOM, Everyday Genius, and writing with BitchMedia, LAMBDA Literary, GLAAD, Original Plumbing, and Entropy. If they could convince you of anything, here and now, they would want it to be to abolish all prisons, all borders, and all cops. They are making amends with their world.
