Meet our readers: Sherese Francis

TRANSIT NOTE: Q.E.D. is usually a short trip from Manhattan on the N train to Astoria–Ditmars Blvd in Queens. However, planned construction will disrupt train service the weekend of June 2nd. Shuttle buses will run from Queensboro Plaza to Astoria–Ditmars Blvd. Please leave yourself plenty of extra time for travel, at least thirty minutes to be safe.

Sherese Francis is a Southeast Queens–based poet, writer, blogger and literary curator. She has published work in journals and anthologies including Art in Odd Places, Bone Bouquet, African Voices, Newtown Literary, Blackberry Magazine, Kalyani Magazine, and Near Kin: A Collection of Words and Art Inspired by Octavia Estelle Butler. In August 2017, she published her first chapbook, Lucy's Bone Scrolls: The Black Speculative Mystery School.

Sherese has also facilitated workshops for No Longer Empty, Lewis Latimer House, New York Writer's Coalition and Newtown Literary. Additionally, she is a board member for the small press imprint Harlequin Creature. Her current projects include her Afrofuturism-inspired blog, Futuristically Ancient, and her Southeast Queens–based pop-up bookshop/mobile library, J. Expressions, which is dedicated to promoting and growing the literary community in the area and for which she received a 2017 Queens Council on the Arts grant for her Reading (W)Riting Remedy series.
