About Monica Robinson

Welcome! I'm a Philadelphia based queer poet, activist, photography, artist, avid reader, and author of "Exit Wounds", "EARTH IS FULL; GO BACK HOME", and "bury my in iron and ivy: a midwestern gothic, relayed in pieces". As a creator, writing is my primary love and I tie this to the other art that I create, including a focus on the creation of recycled artwork to maintain sustainability in the creative world. I'm currently working on a handful of numerous projects including an art, prose, and poetry chapbook inspired by the short story, "The Yellow Wallpaper", and a novella-length desert gothic, and managing my first-ever booth at the Pretzel Park Farmer's Market.

Though writing itself is a singular and solitary endeavor, sharing these musings and attempted masterpieces with the world is more social an undertaking than I ever would have imagined. Social media is both a blessing and a curse, but the ability to reach hundreds of (hopefully) real people with writings, photography, art pieces, professed love for my dog, etc, on Instagram is the main way I've managed to carve out somewhat of a following for myself, and I'm very grateful!

It has taken so much time, patience, work, and the occasional tear shed to reach of point of having faith in what I do and the things I create, and I'm still striving for confidence and clarity every day. I dream of the day when writing can be my full time job, and making art will feel more like a hobby again, but for now, I'm on a path to find success for myself in what to me has been one of the most important aspects of living and breathing, while continuing to learn, grow, explore, and just genuinely enjoy life every so often without being too caught up in the looming semantics that sometimes plague an artist's heart. As a smart man once rightly claimed, poets are damned, but see with the eyes of angels. 

If you'd like to be a part of this incredible and often chaotic, evolutionary journey of mine, you can keep up with book updates and daily posts about recommended reading, poems, writings, a wide variety of photography and art, upcoming events, available merch, and again, professed love for my dog and girlfriend, by following my Instagram Come say hi! My website can be found at, I write blog posts and book reviews on a platform called Hive at, and of course, you can pledge your support right here.

For pledging monthly, you'll recieve a typewritten poem and a blackout poetry piece inside of a handwritten card or letter, with the potential for a few other surprise artsy odds and ends every month. Your pledges go towards the production of my next book, as well as the upkeep and costs of supplies and production for other art and photography. I'll also be giving poetry/prose prompts, writing advice, and general literary musings a home here as a hopeful resource for other writers and a little bit of insight into my process.

For business or commission inquiries, I can always be reached at [email protected] Thanks for being here, and thanks for reading!
