Catherine Weiss

“In 2012, I started writing poetry. Because I love the sound of my own voice, and engaging in processes that grant me forms of validation, I started participating in open-mics and slam competitions.

I write about topics like mental illness, fatness, gender, and occasionally other things that either grind my gears or make me weepy. Sometimes I'm funny."
