FEATURING: Nicole Homer

Nicole Homer is a writer and educator. Combining the intimacy of a whisper and the nonchalance of a bus station confession (with a helping of humor), she tells stories that examine gender, race, relationships and the minutia of life in a way that invites the reader to come in, pull up a chair, and stay awhile. Her writing has appeared in MuzzleThe OffingFreezeRay PoetryCease CowsThe Boiler Journal, and elsewhere. She is an Editor and regular contributor at BlackNerdProblems. She earned an MFA from Rutgers-Newark and currently lives in New Jersey where she teaches. She is the author of full-length poetry collection, Pecking Order, an unflinching look at how race and gender politics play out in the domestic sphere.
