My name is Zoe Tuck. I was born in Texas, became a person in California, and now live in Massachusetts, where I am building the Threshold Academy, a bookstore and non-traditional educational / performance space. I co-curate the But Also house reading series. I'm the author of Soft Investigations (Daisy Mayhem Books 2019) and Terror Matrix (Timeless, Infinite Light 2014) and right now I'm working on The Book of Bella.

The Book of Bella is an epic poem whose sections I will publish serially. Before I transitioned and settled on the name Zoe, I struggled to appear under a different name, Bella. I began thinking about this self who almost, but never quite emerged. The tenderness I feel for her motivates me to write this epic as a space for Bella to be and to speak. My decision to publish this poem on Patreon is based on my desire to make writing more of a sustainable process while speaking directly to those people who care most about my work.
