Jess X. Snow
Jess X. Snow is a queer migrant Asian-American public artist, filmmaker and poet based in NYC by the way of Canada and China. As a result of the rootlessness that marked her childhood, she developed a severe stutter which she overcame through her discovery of visual and written language. Her poetry has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and has taken her to stages such as the US Institute for Peace, PBS Newshour, and universities and backyards nationwide. Her first manuscript of poetry, Sing Me a Time Machine is forthcoming. She is working toward a future where queer, migrant youth of color may see themselves heroic on the big screen and the city walls & then can face the possibility to grow up and create their own.
