Deon Robinson is a second-year MFA Candidate of Poetry at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His literary interests lie in the intersection of reformed masculinity, black queerness, Christianity as a cultural rite of passage in low-income communities, and mother-son relationships. He has received fellowships from the Brooklyn Poets, the DreamYard Rad(ical) Poetry Consortium and the Hurston/Wright Foundation. He hopes his mother is proud of him.
