Salem B Holden

Like their gender, Salem B Holden (they/them) can be found everywhere and nowhere, probably hugging some tree in the woods, talking to spiders and praising them on their beautiful webs, or foraging mushrooms. They have three chapbooks: How to They/them, Life in the Body, and Rebirth and have been published in Babyteeth, The Insurgence, Many Nice Donkeys, and Lions Online. Their poems have been featured in SOS Art Cincinnati’s Pride Celebration and have won the R.M. Miller Fiction award twice for their Young Adult novel.
