I am a very tall, queer femme poet, model, pagan, and pornographer.
As a model, I've been featured on the cover of This Is My Letter to the World by Cathrynne M. Valente and on the Unholy Harvest 2011 website (not that you can tell, unless you happen to recognize my shoes). As a poet, my work has appeared in Vagina Dentata, Venus in Scorpio, Whorespeak, bywords.ca, and the Bywords Quarterly Journal. I am one half of the queer women’s literotica troupe Honeyed Tongues, and I blog about feminism, sex work, gender, kink at Syrens and about urban agriculture, paganism, cooking, foraging, food preservation, and animism at Urban Meliad (links goes to the LJ-RSS feed). I co-organize the women's spoken word showcase Voices of Venus (link goes to the LJ-RSS freed for the VoV blog, fyi). You can find my online modeling portfolio here. Please feel free to check it out.

I also have a dreamwidth account (amazon_syren) -- though, I confess, I don't use it all that much -- and can be found on twitter.
