Ananda Naima González is a writer residing in Harlem, NY on Lenapehoking. She carries a BA and an MFA from Columbia University, in poetry and fiction respectively, and her words have appeared in BOMB, McSweeney’s, The Southern Review, Catapult, and Lampblack. Her work is finely tuned to the tender and brutal realities of humanity, feral and natural energies, and dreamscapes. Her mission is to honor the inherently sacred ritual of living. She is sensitive to the energy and aura of words, and allows her spirit to guide her creations, so as to build prayers, myths, and stories that serve as healing tonics. In addition to writing, she is also an accomplished dancer, choreographer, and filmmaker.
