Tisa Bryant is a San Francisco-based writer and curator. Her work has recently appeared in Clamour, Children of the Dream: Our Own Stories of Growing Up Black in America(Pocket Books), and is forthcoming in the anthologies Beyond the FrontierandWhat Is Not Said. A novel, Letters to Regret,is forthcoming from Leroy Press. What is special about her work is on the one hand, the speculative questioning about location, space, citizenship--where are we? why are we here and who wants us in this place?--and on the other hand, a rapturous attention to the disturbing psychic and sensuous details of everyday life.
