emBODY poetry explores an experimental form of poetry on unorthodox canvases, with original work by Jessica Mehta. Experience poetry as it merges with technology, revealing itself on those who inhabit bodies who are traditionally under-represented and hyper-sexualized in much of mainstream western society.

Jessica Mehta is a multi-award-winning poet and artist who works at the intersections of mixed and digital media. She is currently a poetry editor at Bending Genres literary review, Airlie Press, and the peer-reviewed Exclamat!on journal. Jessica is also the founder of the Jessica Tyner Scholarship Fund, the only scholarship exclusively for Native Americans pursuing an advanced degree in writing. As a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, space, place, and identity inform much of their work.

Thank you to the National Endowment for the Arts and the Jackson Foundation for supporting the 2019-20 New Media Fellowship.
