J. Krista Merighi is a Boston soul with a Chicago heart. A hockey fanatic with a deep passion for spoken-word poetry, she is a reminder that we are all multi-faceted people and that it is downright impossible to put us into any set, narrow, category.
Merighi gives a voice to the experiences that transcend words sometimes. She takes the chaos of complex emotions and lays them out for the reader. Her writing is simultaneously raw and poetic, vulnerable and snarky. Her work reminds us that our entire lives are a form of poetry, from the heartbreaking moments to the everyday actions.
Her work has been featured on Thought Catalog, Rebelle Society, Literally Darling, Hello Giggles, Days of Y’Orr, and Vagina: The Zine. When not writing, J can be found seeing exactly what her adopted city of Chicago is made of. You can reach her via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
