MY DEBUT COLLECTION OF ESSAYS & POEMS
“I’m telling my story, so there won’t be a mistake!”
Hello! My name is Sean Avery Medlin, my pronouns are they/them, and I’m a gamer and Hip-Hop nerd. My only wish in this world is to watch an unproblematic, Black sci-fi T.V. show. Till then, I teach creative writing, and guide cultural work for organizations across the U.S. I also create rap, poetry, prose and performance. My music, literature, and theater all question the limits of Black masculinity, media (mis)representation, and personal narrative.
My work has been featured in Phoenix New Times, Chicago Tribune, Afropunk, Blavity, and the 2020 Tucson Poetry Festival. My Hip-Hop play and album, skinnyblk, along with all my previous work, is available on this website. 808s & Otherworlds: Memories, Remixes, & Mythologies is Medlin’s debut collection of essays and poetry, available everywhere books are sold.
