In A Nutshell

Why ‘Biomythography’?

To quote Ted Warburton, “Biomythography is the weaving together of myth, history and biography in epic narrative form, a style of composition that represents all the ways in which we perceive the world.”

Audre Lorde first coined the term when she wrote Zami: A New Spelling of My Name.  A ‘Biomythography’ empowers the subject, using different genres, including (but not limited to) poetry, fiction, non-fiction, essays, and critical theory. I take my lead from Lorde’s non-conventional writing, to embrace all parts of my always-evolving story.

I use different forms of writing to tell it all. Sometimes I make it up. Sometimes I tell it as it is. And sometimes, I forget why I write.
